This is the Good Practice Blog of the University of Sheffield teachingcommons: created so faculty, staff and students at the University have an easy and accessible way to share their ideas and thoughts and what is going on in the area of Learning and Teaching.
Blogs are most useful at capturing what people are doing immediately, they are not so good at archiving material. For this reason, the blog posts will also be archived on the Case Studies Wiki (which is a powerful database with a search function that searches every word in every post).
For more information about the teachingcommons project that this blog is part of and the other ways that we have for you to share what you do (like face-to-face events and a YouTube channel) please go to our main site. The teachingcommons project (which initially started off as the Case Studies Project) was launched in October 2008. For more information on this event and the various discussions that came out of it, click on the Launch category on the main page of the blog or go here.
We welcome contributions from everyone, so please feel free to share your thoughts. Either leave a comment or contact N.Wills@sheffield.ac.uk to sign up as a guest blogger (Nadine Wills CILASS Academic Fellow and Teaching Enhancement Advisor in LeTS facilitates the teachingcommons project as well as writing the introductions to the posts).
You can subscribe to the Calendar on the righthand side of your screen to see who will be blogging next and what is the next upcoming teachingcommons event. A static list of teachingcommons events is also available here.
