This year’s CPD was themed around the Activate Learning Philosophy and Curriculum Transformation.
The morning began with Cheryl’s outline of the Activate Learning Philosophy in relation to the brain, motivation and emotions.

The Power of believing you can improve.– TED Talk, Carol Dweck
Staff then attended a series of workshops delivered by colleagues in relation to what this looks like in reality. Some of these were directed more towards business support staff and the varied roles they undertake. Staff booked into these sessions beforehand and there were a number of them that filled up very quickly.
How to produce a poster using Google Drawing– Fiona Moore
How to produce a presentation using Emaze– Fiona Moore
The Creation of Readiness– Carly Francis
Think Like an Engineer– to accompany Carly Francis’s and Scott Reilly’s sessions
Becoming a brand ambassador– The Marketing Team
More resources from the morning workshops will be available soon!
The absolute highlight of this was Bryan Mathers spotting what was going on via our hashtag and creating this image for us. This image is now the background on my iPad and I have made a Chrome theme with it…Excited is not the word!
As I’ve explained previously, our curriculum transformation has been taking place over the last year. The afternoon gave teams an opportunity to explore their curriculums some more. They had visits from members of our senior leadership team and Pablo, who leads on enterprise activities at the colleges.
As departments share their notes from the afternoon, these will be added here.
Feedback from staff for the afternoon is below. Thank you to all our facilitators on the day!
