School of Arts Learning & Teaching event, University of SurreyDr Christopher Wiley organized a half-day Learning and Teaching development event for the School of Arts at the University of Surrey on 12 January 2016. This was the fifth forum of this nature in two years (see information about previous events here), and involved some 40 staff from across the institution.

This event incorporated a training session led by the University’s Student Services on the pastoral side of Personal Tutoring, as well as a discussion forum on student evaluation of teaching facilitated by Dr Wiley, which considered how academic staff might seek to maximize the effectiveness of feedback received from students for purposes of ongoing teaching enhancement.

A blog post written by Dr Wiley, in which the School of Arts Learning and Teaching symposia are discussed, has recently appeared on the Association of National Teaching Fellows blog. The post, entitled ‘How do National Teaching Fellows make a contribution in their institution?’, may be read at the following link:

Update: With over 400 reads in the week in which it appeared, Dr Wiley’s post set a new record for the Association of National Teaching Fellows blog.

University of Surrey: Surrey ExciTeSDr Christopher Wiley led a discussion forum at the annual Surrey ExciTeS (Excellence in Teaching Symposium) event at the University of Surrey on Wednesday 7 January 2015.

Dr Wiley’s session, entitled ‘Module Evaluation Questionnaires: How can we use them to enhance teaching?’, drew on his expertise in the field of student evaluation of teaching.

In the course of the forum, Dr Wiley asked how data gathered via module evaluation might be used to enhance teaching and how the quality of that data might be improved, prompting much productive discussion among attendees.

Dr Wiley had previously presented at the inaugural Surrey ExciTeS Symposium in January 2014.
