What can you learn from the MOLE Exemplary Course Programme?

We spoke to lecturers to Tom Clark and Michael Livingstone as well as Danny Monaghan from the TEL Team after they presented the session 'Mole Exemplary Course Programme', which marked the start of day two of TELFest. 

Michael Livingstone, a PhD Researcher at The University of Sheffield Landscape Department, explained how he had used the programme to improve his own input into MOLE and change courses so they are more engaging and easy to use. 

He said: 'The TEL and @CiCS teams gave me loads of great ideas for how to improve our MOLE modules.'

He also praised the peer support aspect of the course, where you get paired with someone and give each other advice on how to improve your modules and also get the opportunity to present your work and get feedback from everyone on the course.

Michael said: "It was really inspiring to see what all the people had done." 

Dr Tom Clark, a lecturer in the Department of Sociological Studies, who also works for the Sheffield Methods Institute, told us how he thinks students have benefited from him attending the course. 

He said: "It allows students to take ownership over their own learning choices, they can shape their learning engagement according to their own needs."

We also spoke to Danny Monaghan from the TEL Team, who chaired the session. He explained what people can learn from attending the MOLE Exemplary Course Programme and how important it is for people to understand exactly what MOLE can do and why is it so beneficial for staff and students.
