We hit ‘pause’ on the SoTL walk last month but we are back, phoenix-like, encouraging you all to step away from your desks this week and join this great conversation about teaching and learning!
We dedicate a whole week (26-31 Oct) to the SoTL walk to include as many people as possible, whatever your commitments or location in the world. It doesn’t matter when you do it, just choose an hour that suits your schedule. Then…
WALK: Get outside and go for a 30 minute walk. Take something with you to record your experience – either a phone/camera or a notepad and pencil (for noting and sketching).
THINK: Whilst you are walking, think about the following provocation:
Ghostbusters! (It is Halloween, after all!)…Are there are demons in your teaching and learning closet? Any fright-nights to share? Maybe a trick or treat in your curriculum? Play with the ideas and themes associated with this season, and think about how they can help to explore or explain your teaching practice.
SHARE: When you return from your walk, share your reflections online with others. Respond to their ideas too! Include an image (a photo, video or sketch) and some words which explain your thoughts. There are two options for sharing:
- Twitter – use the hashtag #sotlwalk
- Padlet – Go To Padlet (or click below to post straight to the October wall)
