Teaching, Learning and Assessment the WEA Way
July 14, 2013 Leave a comment
This link takes you to a ‘storified’ collation of tweets and comments from a WEA event that focused on embedding the WEA’s vision into teaching, learning and assessment through our 4 educational themes of Employability, Health and Wellbeing, Community Engagement and Culture.
The event wasn’t all discussion although that was an important element.
The day included a lot of practical work on developing sample learning outcomes and assessing our courses’ potential impact. This built on recent WEA impact surveys aligned with continuing research by Community Learning Trusts and the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills. The tweets didn’t capture the full scope of the event but they give a flavour of some of the issues that were considered.
The WEA’s vision is: “A better world, equal, democratic and just; through adult education the WEA challenges and inspires individuals, communities and society.”
