background to the thinking
Background to the thinking
  • CETL for Professional Learning in the Workplace
  • Projects for developing work in the curriculum & in / from the University
  • focus on work practices rather than place
    • Multilingua – modern languages work
    • Westphoto – photographic agency & library
    • Law Office
    • Live projects
my background in practice based learning and ap e l
My background in practice-based learning and AP(E)L
  • The University Polyclinic
  • Courses leading to professional entry that attract some practitioners who want to improve / formalise their practice, or add a second profession
  • Working to professional accreditation requirements
  • Developing a specific practice philosophy (in the therapy and in the prac / patient relationship
languages and photography curricula models
Languages and photography curricula models
  • Modern languages takes students with none or limited language and develops proficiency through spiral curriculum of artificial practice situations
  • Photography takes students with any / no experience and offers a range of applications through atomistic modules – curriculum focused on creativity (being and understanding)
  • Both project Initiatives brought practice (work) into the course environment
multilingua
Multilingua
  • Conceptualised as work-simulation, leading to voluntary, research and paid language work (students as a resource to work & social activities involving language and cultural understanding
  • curriculum-shift to all learning tasks replicating real world language tasks (work or cultural practice-orientated) – ie authentic assessment formats as drivers for learning.
  • Finding openings for students’ (and VLs’) p/t work to contribute to course experiences
westphoto
Westphoto
  • Originally conceptualised as a resource (photo library to store and market images) but grew into a workplace
  • A workplace on campus led to a shift in thinking around what it meant to be ’a professional’
  • (foregrounding working practices alongside creativity)
  • using a photo library becomes generic
  • A range of career opportunities available through the agency, inc work around the University
  • Introduce a module on photo library practice
  • What might they do in terms of APEL?
