Relaunch of the Placement and Work-based Learning Special Interest Group

Title of Session: Placement and Work-based Learning Special Interest Group (SIG)
Date and Time: Wednesday 22nd February 1215-1400
Venue: St John’s Campus, CC009 (Hereford Room, Conference Centre)

The new University policy for the ‘Management of Placement and Work-Based Learning (WBL)’ was approved in July 2016 with the expectation that this will be fully implemented by 2017-18. This session re-launches the Special Interest Group for Placement and Work-Based Learning (WBL). The main aims of the Placement/WBL SIG are to support staff in the implementation of the policy and to facilitate a community of practice where we can share experiences and current good practice and find solutions to some of the challenges in managing a variety of placement experiences. All staff with an interest in placement/WBL (including partner organisations) are welcome. Each meeting will also have at least one key discussion topic.

This first meeting in the series will look at current practice in ‘Evaluating Placement and WBL’ and the development of the placement module evaluation questionnaire (which will be available for use in EvaSys). This will align with the additional questions related to placements/WBL which are now incorporated in the NSS as well as contribute to work taking place related to employability and students’ learning gain. Drinks will be provided but please feel free to bring your own lunch to the meeting.
