LD@3 – Interactive collaboration via Google Drawings
Date / Time: Tuesday 3rd November 3.00pm – 4.00pm
Location: Online via this Collaborate link
Presenter: Sheryl Mansfield, University of Northampton
Over the last three years, I have developed a range of active resources in the classroom from articulate cards to sorting and categorising items for discussion. Due to COVID-19 lockdown, we became bound to our home offices, kitchen tables and bedrooms, and these were left gathering dust. Currently, Learning Development at Northampton delivers sessions online, with only special exception for programmes where content is face to face. The current climate does not allow these types of active sessions to work as they require a group to be tactile and congregate around the resource. This led me to experiment with different applications, one of which is Google Drawings, which allows multiple users to view and edit the document simultaneously and/or synchronously (Ward and Blanchfield, 2018). This is a neat way of allowing groups to participate in active learning collaboratively. These activities can be used in a range of ways throughout online sessions engaging in content as a starter activity, an initial or formative assessment. I will demonstrate how I instruct the task and demonstrate the different drag and drop activities I have used to complement my sessions. The students have enjoyed participating in this type of activity and I am definitely using it more in my online sessions. As well as presenting, I look forward to peer feedback about my approach.
Please note that that this meeting will be hosted on Collaborate, which does not support Internet Explorer. You can access the live session with Microsoft Edge, Chrome, Firefox, or Safari.
LD@3 is open to everyone. Please feel free to circulate this to interested colleagues. Information about upcoming sessions and materials from past sessions can be found on the ALDinHE events website.

Calling new presenters for the LD@3 20/21 Programme!
We are looking for 20-30 minute presentations on all and any aspects of learning development. This could be an opportunity to tell the community about new innovations in your teaching or practice, to test out new ideas with a receptive audience or present part of your work that may go on to publish.
Presentations will be hosted online at 3pm with opportunity for questions from participants.
