Walk and talk
George Roberts and Richard Francis invite all staff interested in learning and teaching in higher education to step outside. Walking: the rhythm of movement, the air, the trees (even the rain) all can help us see into the world away from the virtual machine. In these "walk and talks" we will discuss what students really want from their university teaching and learning.

The walks start at 1200 and last about an hour:
+ Thursday 05 October 2017, From Headington John Henry Brookes (JHB) to South Park (accessible route);
+ Thursday 09 November 2017, From Harcourt Hill to Raleigh Park (woodland walking);
+ Thursday 30 November 2017, From Marston Rd Campus to Doris Field park (accessible route).

The government's own data might tell us what students hope for their learning experience: support for self-directed learning, development and recognition of good teaching, support to develop the relationship between research, teaching and scholarship, support for the emotional and relational aspects of learning communities, and to provide high quality learning spaces (Higher Education Academy, & Higher Education Policy Institute. 2015). Is this what we should do?
