Collaborative cluster workshops

Collaborative clusters are groups of institutions working together on matters of mutual interest.  This work has the potential to add value to the whole sector once complete. Details of current cluster work are below.

The creative disciplines

Glasgow School of Art and The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland are leading this cluster. The project will raise awareness of how we are increasingly using outcomes metrics in creative subjects to assess the impact of education students receive. It will also identify how best to communicate teaching enhancement to those who use creative disciplines graduates (both directly in the creative industries and indirectly as creative workers more generally) from the evidence gathered about student experience now.

Further details are available from Professor Vicky Gunn or Mr Jamie MacKay.

Learning analytics

The University of Strathclyde is leading this cluster. The project will give institutions an opportunity to explore many topics under the umbrella of learning analytics. 

The first of two workshops takes place on 27 February 2018 at the University of Strathclyde.  Registration details are on the event webpage.  

Employability and distance learning workshops

The Open University in Scotland is leading this cluster. The aim of the project is to provide an opportunity for institutions to explore potential collaboration on two topics; employability and distance learning.

They will be holding two all-day workshops exploring two topics: 

Participants will be encouraged to reflect on their institutional priorities and needs around the topics above before each workshop. We will aim to produce reports from the workshops that will outline potential project work that, if appropriate, we will be able to refine to become a final project proposals for submission to QAA Scotland.

Places for each workshop are limited to 20. For more information for either workshop please contact Heather Gibson, Learning Enhancement Manager, Open University in Scotland.
