2 Practice Pedagogy Model from James & Brookfield (2014)

3 Our definitions creativity The making of newness, including adoption of thinking processes or borrowing from one domain to enhance another Joy, flair, value Not just wacky imagination Conjuring possibilities Fanciful, not necessarily fantasist Other ways of being, seeing, doing and becoming Extending and fulfilling Play(fulness) A childlike, not childish, mode of enquiry A means of exploring possibilities through simulation Re-energising and freeing Model from James & Brookfield (2014)

4 learning preferences & LSP “It feels like when I put my thoughts on paper and try to fit them into the structures and rules of academic writing, my own thoughts become alien to me and I no longer understand them or see the logic of them in the same way” Line, Scandinavian student “It feels like when I put my thoughts on paper and try to fit them into the structures and rules of academic writing, my own thoughts become alien to me and I no longer understand them or see the logic of them in the same way” Line, Scandinavian student

8 How LSP works You Identify a question or subject Warm up your skills Develop and use metaphor to structure your thoughts Follow a four part process in which you question, build, share and reflect Use one or more of seven applications, which can be customised to suit the question/topic Build individual and joint models, from small single items to complex and large scale systems Add to, adjust or develop one area or action from model: ‘double clicking’ Offer comments and observations on others’ models

9 Lego workshop structure Modelling identity and PDP through metaphorical builds and discussion 1.5 hours skills building First model of where they are now – skills, attributes, feelings, experiences Sharing and discussion of models, feedback Developing one area or action from model: ‘double clicking’ Sharing and discussion Gifting – creating for fellow student something that you believe to be true about them and which is missing from their model Evaluation in Pod using Brookfields’s CIQ

10 “If you don’t know what to build, start building” LSP Manual

11 “How do I know what I think till I see what I say?” E.M.Forster, Aspects of the Novel

13 Things students found beneficial Using metaphor helped them think more creatively Ways of listening and responding Improved attention and concentration Deepening of analysis of experience Visualising actions and emotions Planning next steps in 3D Broadened English Good for students with dyslexia/ADHD international students felt more included Relationship building

14 I have understood within my model that my weakness lay in my tendencies to do things safely, repeat what I’ve done before because I know I can do it, but it is not risky nor innovative, therefore that work cannot be excellent.

15 The Lego workshop was indeed very interesting. The activities helped me to “loosen up” my mind and somehow it felt like I was being less restricted when coming up with ideas and even words to describe my learning journey at the end of the workshop as compared to the start. By getting us to build anything out of random blocks to illustrate our learning journey, it felt like it really exercised and challenged my creativity”

18 Where (else) is LSP being used? to explore team identity For student PPD To think about student engagement To reflect on roles To think about progress and planning In industry collaborations To understand topics better For academic support To understand threshold concepts For evaluation & course monitoring To develop consensus and share ideas To build connections between people To explore sustainability To share conceptions of how we motivate learning In doctoral study For professional development outside the university/abroad In a Community of Practice

19 Not sure if you remember me, I am from the Language Centre supporting students on the IPF course. I came to one of your Lego PPD workshops in Mare St. I just had to tell you that since then I have been following the same model with my two boys (aged 4 and 7) every morning before school.
