On Monday, April 3rd (one week from today!) Jim Groom will join us here at NUI Galway to facilitate a workshop: Student as Partner, Producer & Assessor: Exploring Domain of One’s Own.

The workshop is free to attend thanks to sponsorship from the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching & Learning in Higher Education. The workshop is part of the National Forum’s 2016-17 seminar series and also a key event in 2017 All Aboard (April 3-7) a week-long series of national and regional public events designed to build confidence in Ireland’s digital skills for learning.

Jim was previously the director of Teaching & Learning Technologies and adjunct professor at the University of Mary Washington (USA) and is the co-founder of Reclaim Hosting. He is a co-developer of the Domain of One’s Own (DoOO) initiative. Jim’s recent post Next Generation Digital Learning Environments gives a good idea of his work and his thinking. He is also excited to be visiting Ireland for the first time.

In the Student as Partner, Producer & Assessor workshop on April 3rd, we will explore participatory pedagogies, a partnership approach to teaching and learning, and agentic/authentic assessment. In addition, Jim will guide participants in creating their own domains and discussing how DoOO can be used in learning, teaching and assessment.

All are welcome to join the workshop. Eilis O’Regan, programme coordinator at NUI Galway and newcomer to blogging, recently shared her thoughts about the workshop in A nod to the Woolf:

I feel like the educational stars have aligned – I’m so excited about attending this workshop.

There are just a few places still available — please sign up if you’d like to attend (no workshop fee and lunch will be provided). We’d love to see you here in Galway.

    1. Hi Deb – many thanks for your comment. The workshop will be interactive so the whole event will not be live streamed. However, we will share short live recordings (perhaps using Periscope) during the day. You can follow me and/or hashtag #heie on Twitter next Monday. See you then! 🙂

      1. that sounds cool ! I have my first residential course up at Lancaster for my Phd ( #phdnewbie #majorimpostersyndrome) next week so will mention it to colleagues too ! Many thanks 🙂

  1. Really looking forward to this event, Catherine! Sounds like we’ll be in great company to explore the idea of student as partner, producer, and assessor. Thanks for the helpful pre-reading too. See Soon, Clare
