Work with Nordic Food, Co-Creation, Hotel Analytics and Simulations
Join fellow educators and together focus on the professional development of teaching track faculty (teaching professors, lecturers, instructors). This session fills a crucial need as many departments have limited experience on how to mentor, evaluate, and promote new ways of teaching and learning suited for new generations of students.
PRACTICAL INSIGHTS WORKSHOPS
The workshop process is designed on the basis of the same principles of reflective practice-based learning that constitute the content of the workshop. This gives the participants the opportunity to experience how our institutional learning philosophy permeates our activities and inform our teaching practice, here at University College of Northern Jutland.
In the design of the workshop we thus focus on activating the participants and on sharing experiences from different parts of the world. We will be including elements of disturbance, encouraging exploration, and we will supply good and specific examples from UCN. We will facilitate both sharing, collaboration and dialogue in order to create a valuable learning environment for all participant and we will make sure that every single one leaves with at least one new exercise to easily implement at home.
During the workshop we will introduce the concept of co-creation and it’s roles and significance in our institution. We will focus on how the method creates both short and long term value in the educational processes and agendas of our institution and how it relates to our institutional learning approach, and to the skill needs of the workplaces, we educate for. In collaboration with participants we zoom in on, what defines the role of the facilitator in co-creation processes, and how it differs from more traditional teaching.
The workshop facilitator has been part of the Co-creation project at UCN for 3 years and have experience with a lot of different takes on teaching based on Co-Creation.
As a participant, you will benefit from a combination of information, theory and examples of how we work with co-creation, and we expect you to be ready to engage in both discussion and exploration of perspectives, experiences and potential of the approach. We promise that you will leave the workshop with new positive relations and with a new perspective on teaching.
