The Fellowship is excited to be invited to present a ‘hands-on’ workshop at the upcoming HERDSA conference in Hobart on July 2nd to be exact. Les Kirkup, Jenny Pizzica, Katrina Waite and Andrea Mears have devised the workshop (Katrina and Les will facilitate it on the day). The title of the workshop is: Experiencing an inquiry-oriented activity: How was it for you? This workshop will explore issues of student engagement and learning through inquiry type activities by connecting with, and exploring from several perspectives, the student experience and that of staff supporting student learning. During this workshop participants will assume the roles of students, educational developers and evaluators. No prior disciplinary knowledge is assumed or required in order to participate fully in the workshop, – the only requirement is curiosity about inquiry learning. The group as a whole will then unpack the educational value of the activity– challenges for staff, what did the participants experience, what did the observers notice about what the ‘students’ did and about what the teachers did. How could activity be improved? In what way(s) should the activity be scaffolded?
