Outside of personal tutoring use, PebblePad can be a creative and useful tool to develop student reflection, and support portfolio-based learning and assessment. Come to this PRiA session to see and discuss real examples of use from across the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Cultures.
We'll hear from:
- Dr Helen Iball, School of English - using a PebblePad workbook for each stage of an undergraduate creative/research project on the BA (Hons) English Literature and Theatre Studies.
- Dr Joslin McKinney, School of Performance and Cultural Industries - using creative PebblePad portfolios. The level 3 'Performance Design and Space' module asks students to investigate the way space 'performs' and explore how design can frame or generate performative encounters in urban space. This year, students have been using PebblePad to record and reflect on their observations of locations in Leeds and develop their own creative proposals for using design. In this presentation, I'll reflect on what using PebblePad offers this kind of module and the ways students have responded.
- Professor Karen Burland, School of Music - using a PebblePad workbook on a large cross-Faculty skills-in-context module to support students' reflections on their identities, values and goals, and to help them to surface and evidence their skills. Reflections on practice and student experience.
