Learning through Listening: Creating open spaces for interdisciplinary dialogue

Free workshop at the University of Edinburgh on Monday 23 April

The event will explore pedagogies of listening and one-to-one communication that enable and facilitate learning from others through dialogue.  If you have an interest in enhancing the student experience through developing communication skills, interdisciplinary collaboration, dialogic approaches or education for sustainable development, this workshop will be of interest.

It gives an opportunity to explore the ways we teach communication skills in further/higher education to support collaboration, interdisciplinarity and inter-cultural exchange; try out a range of activities and resources aimed at developing environments for open and respectful conversations; and take part in discussions aimed at sharing and developing high quality learning and teaching practice for better communication skills.

Find out more, look at the draft programme, and book your place

The event draws on the resources and experiences of the HEFCE Catalyst funded teaching innovation project ‘Unmaking Single Perspectives: a Listening Project’ currently running at Keele University.
