NEW Active Learning and Teaching Workshop (No 3) : Thinking with your Hands

When we use our hands to ‘tinker’ we engage the part of the brain that generates sensory images in our minds. This helps us to work out our thoughts and develop deeper understanding.

This hands-on workshop will look at ways to explore hand mind connections and learning as well as ways to record ideas. The workshop will include a range of enjoyable and engaging activities and tools to support FET learners to actively think, connect, learn, share and record ideas using creative thinking and memory tools such as Lego®Serious Play® and Tony Buzans Mind Mapping technique.

This workshop is workshop number three in a series of active learning and teaching workshops offered by FESS. There is no requirement to have attended workshops number one or two to attend this workshop.

This professional development day will support goal 2 of the Further Education and Training Professional Development Strategy 2017-2019 in the following strategic priority area:Working with and supporting FET learners.

The target audience for this workshop is teachers, tutors and trainers working in FET classrooms.

Facilitator: Miriam O' Donoghue, FESS
