The next edition of Forum, the University of York in-house Learning and Teaching magazine, is due to be published at the start of the Autumn term. The magazine is published by the Learning and Teaching Forum to disseminate good practice and discuss issues relating to learning and teaching. Previous editions can be found on the website, https://yorkforum.org/forum-magazine/
Making it stick in different disciplines
This issue will be on the theme ‘Strategies for successful learning’ and will explore some of the evidence in the new University of York L&T strategy. The magazine is for and written by colleagues involved in learning and teaching support across the University. We are always looking for input into the magazine. If you have views on this subject, or would like to highlight an example of good practice from your area, please do get in touch.
In particular, we are keen to explore the implications of the science of learning and memory for different disciplines based on the Make it Stick book (Brown, Roediger and McDaniel 2014, Harvard University Press). If you have read this book and would like to share how you address these ideas in your discipline or its potential impact then please do get in touch.
News and events
We also feature short news articles (around 200 words) highlighting achievements and developments in learning and teaching. If you have a news article from your department you would like to include, please do let me know. Please also forward any learning and teaching events being run next term, for inclusion in the calendar of events.
The deadline for receiving all copy for the magazine is Monday 10 August 2015.
