Through this workshop, participants are supported to explore and discuss their own induction practice. As they do so, the workshop also models the 'student-generated induction' process already implemented in several different institutions.
Workshop participants are introduced to a new theory of learning applied to induction and transition (Social Identity Theory). To support transfer into practice, those involved will also gain first-hand experience of a new scalable and flexible practice called SharedThinking. This technology-enabled process creates a social and participative approach to student-induction in the classroom or lecture theatre.
The guide also includes material on how to measure student-generated induction. These measurements are also a pedagogical tool to help the workshop provider curate the social identity of the group.
This is accompanied by an introduction to innovative learning design for student-induction. The material considers induction-design from an individual, structural and social identity perspective.
Workshop providers are offered an orientation to the new theory and practice of student-generated induction in order to help them prepare for the workshop. This is accompanied by a set of workshop notes, a complete script and a full set of slides. In addition, we provide you with online resources and a reading list to support your workshop.
The workshop can easily be delivered as it stands. Alternatively, the guide is clearly structured for easy adaptation to suit your particular needs. Case studies are provided and additional resources from other workshops are already available online. As such, the guide is suitable for novice and expert trainers alike.
