CLT LUNCHTIME HUB: Team Based Learning by Experience

Posted on behalf of Centre for Learning & Teaching


Team Based Learning by Experience


Team Based Learning (TBL) offers the potential to transform group work into something that: builds high performing teams; creates meaningful learning partnerships between students; and holds students accountable to their peers. The promise of TBL is that flipped teaching will work and peer learning will become a reality not just an aspiration. TBL offers a scaleable way to increase engagement while delivering higher level learning outcomes – a triple win. Is TBL too good to be true?


Join Steve Cayzer, Department of Mechanical Engineering, for this CLT lunchtime hub where you will answer this question by experiencing TBL for yourself.


Pre reading will be provided and you will be assigned to diverse teams. You will then experience the student journey through a typical TBL session, including an individual test, and team test. If time permits there will be a short application activity during which you will assess to what extent TBL could be applied to your teaching.


The author was introduced to TBL in 2017 and it has since transformed his teaching in cohorts of 80-100 students. Along the way, many lessons have been learnt about what works best in our University context.


This session is suitable for those with no experience of TBL, but it is designed to be of value to those who have experienced TBL or related approaches like problem based learning or flipping.


Intended Learning Outcomes


•           Define Team Based Learning (TBL)


•           Describe some empirical evidence for the efficacy of TBL.


•           Assess the suitability of TBL for your own context.


Question and Answers to follow the talk.


A light lunch will be available from 12:15pm

Beatrice Godwin Memorial Lecture

Posted on behalf of University of Bath, Department of Social & Policy Sciences
In Memory of Beatrice Godwin



Beatrice started her studies at Bath in 2003 completing a Masters of Research in European Studies. She then continued her studies and began a PhD in 2005, which focused on the experiences of people living with dementia in the United Kingdom.  Beatrice had an interest in the communication and insight of people with advanced dementia.

Shortly after commencement of her doctoral studies Beatrice was diagnosed with Lymphoma and her ill health resulted in a number of admissions to hospital and suspensions of her study.  In 2014 Beatrice was in remission and continued to work on her doctoral project.

Unfortunately early in 2015 Beatrice became unwell again and the return of lymphoma was diagnosed as terminal.  She had started her fieldwork and was interviewing people with dementia in residential homes across the South West. She undertook these interviews alongside intensive medical treatments whilst continuing to write about her research.

Beatrice was blessed with great personal intellectual qualities, an unfailing tenacity and commitment to her research despite illness and discomfort.



The Inaugural Beatrice Godwin Memorial Lecture



In memory of Beatrice's work, personality and contribution to the [Centre for Death Studies](/cdas/) (CDAS) community, we are hosting this, the inaugural Beatrice Godwin Memorial Lecture. The Beatrice Godwin Memorial Lecture will become an annual event in the CDAS calendar.



“It ain’t what you do, but the way that you do it”: memory, awareness and threat in dementia, presented by Professor Richard Cheston, University of West of England 



Richard will present on how traditional approaches to memory and cognition in psychology emphasise the impact of neurological processes in reducing capacity. The memory of people living with dementia is therefore framed in terms of the deficits affecting both short-term memory and autobiographical memory.

However, while autobiographical memories may be diminished with reminiscences containing conflated or factually incorrect material, nevertheless these memories are clearly highly valued and important. This may be because recalling the past is an important way of adapting to the present: more specifically, memory acts to enhance self-continuity, restore self-esteem and provide life with meaning and purpose. In this way, the recounting of autobiographical memories functions to protect the self from threat.

This talk will draw on evidence from quantitative, laboratory based research and qualitative analysis of narratives from clinical research to argue that nostalgic autobiographical memories play an important part in protecting people with dementia from the existential distress of living with this dreadful condition.

She specialises in musculoskeletal injury rehabilitation, stress and trauma management and treatment of complex patterns of pain and dysfunction. She has worked in the NHS, professional rugby and private practice and is the founder of Quanta Health.

In this workshop, I will be exploring the physiology of stress and the mind body feedback loop. I will share simple ways in which we can use our physical body to interrupt the stress cycle and make real change to both our physical and mental health. So if you are interested in exploring how you can use your physiology to improve your psychology, this workshop is for you."

Point clouds and historic buildings: Surveying and assessing historic masonry

Posted on behalf of The Tuesday Group

The Western Counties Tuesday Group invites you to a free presentation.


 Accurately surveying large and potentially unsafe buildings can be a challenge but is essential to assess stability and condition. Point cloud surveys offer a safe, fast, and detailed means of surveying buildings but how do you specify them and how do you use the data captured? In this talk, Chris will present several projects where point clouds have been used to survey and assess historic masonry buildings ranging from manor houses to ruined abbeys to demonstrate both the capabilities and limitations of the method.
