On this episode we’ve got a couple of features for you, the first a report back from the Media Enhanced learning special interest group event that Colin recent attended, giving you some tips on using video to help your teaching. The second feature describes a great resource for aspiring mentors – one which won recognition recently in our own LTA awards.

At the start of April Colin attended an event by the name of Mel-SIG. Mel-SIG stands for media enhanced learning special interest group, and it concentrates on any user of media in education.
We managed to grab the keynote speaker, Lindsay Jordan from University of the Arts London to give us a little summary of her presentation. She was talking about her 7 big benefits that video can bring to learning and teaching. Listen to the show to find out more.
The Mentor Centre
This episode’s featured resource from the LTA resource bank is one of our previous LTA award winners. The project was run by Barbara Neades and Mike Parkinson and centred around the creation of the Mentor Centrre. The mentor centre is a resource aimed at providing educators with the information they need to be able to work effectively as a mentor and to support students’ learning in practice. Listen to the show to find out more from Barbara and Mike.
