Style of Learning
You will be engaged in this intensive programme by “learning by doing”. You will be invited to work with other colleagues during the Summer Academy to share your ideas. Also, you will be shown tasks and activities which you can use with your students when you return to your institution, in addition you will be provided with the experience and materials to make changes to your personal approach and teaching methods.
The style of learning during the Summer Academy will be very inclusive and interactive, so you will be asked to share and get involved. Most of the work will be undertaken in small groups, which will allow you to work with other participants and understand different teaching methods and ideas together, so you will be encouraged to bring your knowledge to the Summer Academy and outline your approaches, sharing your practices with colleagues.
Pre Summer Academy Requirements
You will be required to undertake some pre-work and some reading before attending the Summer Academy – details will be sent to you in advance.
Post Summer Academy
You will be expected to leave the programme with a clear idea of how to fulfil your 3EP commitment to complete your project successfully. You will be connected with a mentor who will support you in this process, so you can be awarded your Fellowship status (see Commitment, Fellowship and Support for more information).
