turn ideas into realityThe SDF Active Learning Special Interest Group (ALSIG) is aimed at staff developers and facilitators. Its purpose is to provide SDF members with a regular mechanism to interactively share best practice for L&D and facilitation, with a focus on virtual delivery and blended learning for 2020/21.

Active Learning Playgrounds will act as a peer-learning platform, where members can try out new or adapted delivery approaches, techniques, activities and other learning ideas, as well as share good and best practice, in a risk-free, supportive environment.

There’ll be opportunities to enhance related CPD through Guest Speaker Interactive Webinars, and for those interested in active learning research, a peer-research sub-group will be set-up.

There will be three to six SDF Active Learning Playgrounds and Guest Speaker Interactive Workshops each year, sometimes with a combined session.

Full details of each Active Learning Playground workshop, dates & information on how to take part will be circulated via the SDF Jiscmail.

ALSIG Enquires: Please contact Jane Lucas, SDF Administrator – a.viva@sdf.ac.uk for any SDF Active Learning Special Interest Group (ALSIG) enquiries, or, if you would like to deliver or co-facilitate a session.

Session recordings will be available on our AdvanceHE Connect platform in due course.
