A special PebblePad professional learning opportunity
On the 20 June 2018, Griffith staff were invited to an exciting opportunity to hear from Paul Duvall, a lecturer and Director of Technology Enhanced Learning in the School of Medicine, who shared practical insights about using PebblePad.
Paul shared some concrete examples from the past four to five years at Liverpool and helped relate them to our context. In sharing his experiences, Paul shared specific Health examples from Liverpool’s Medical School, and described how things have evolved to meet the needs of the school, the university and the students. This included:
- how PebblePocket can be used for off-campus data collection, specifically regarding use with external assessors or supervisors
- how to use workbooks that are reviewed jointly by students and student advisors
- how the Medical School is leveraging ATLAS reporting.
By watching the recordings, this session will provide you with information, inspiration and ask you to reflect on your current practices to see if you could leverage the power of PebblePad for the first time, or revise your approach for your next iteration.
