The Copenhagen Summit invites academics and university teachers with an interest in learning-centered higher education to document their innovative teaching and learning practices for THE HANDBOOK OF INNOVATIVE TEACHING AND LEARNING PRACTICES IN HIGHER EDUCATION.
Review sessionsFeedback from collegial peer-review groups. Thematic review groups are formed on the basis of the submitted templates showing innovations in teaching and learning practices. Authors receive feedback from the colleagues who have been assigned to review their templates. All feedback has to be encouraging and constructive, given with the purpose of helping author(s) to complete their templates describing their innovative teaching and learning practice.
Writing of thematic section-chapters for the handbook. Delegates join forces in thematic work groups and collaborate to write the thematic section chapters containing their templates with innovative teaching and learning practices.
Delegates meet across work groups to share their innovations of teaching and learning practices and get inspiration and viewpoints from delegates in other work groups. The purpose of this session is to check whether the innovations make sense to an “outside” audience who are working with another theme for their innovations.
Completing the thematic section-chapters for the handbook. Delegates join their thematic work groups to finalise their thematic section-chapter for inclusion in the handbook. Final chapter is submitted on USB-stick / e-mail before 5.30pm.
My personal contribution to the symposium and the international anthology. Authors share the central themes addressed in their chapters. They work to construct central models, which can be used as points of reference in the final manuscript.
The ambition is to further integrate the key themes and arguments of the various chapters with each other by means of cross referencing. (Use revolving round table discussions, followed by a network sheet where authors can visually indicate to which other chapters their contribution relates)
Joint development of the topic through discussion and consensus, working from the network sheet produced in the previous session. Authors are responsible for sequencing of chapters in the anthology. Authors are formed into groups to write introductionary text for the part of the anthology in which their chapter is positioned.
Consultation time with the editors. Based on yesterdays’ chapter reviews and the input from the thematic discussions this morning authors have four hours to edit their chapters. Possibility for Skype-sessions with co-authors not participating.
