Students create footprints of emergence
Posted April 29, 2016on:
Today my colleague Erika and I supported students of physiotherapy to draw their first footprint after completing their first placement. It’s fun to watch them struggling with the concept behind the footprints.
Based on the description of the footprint terminology of Jenny Mackness and Roy Williams we translated the questions for the factors into German and adapted them for school and university students. We tried to use a simple language but keep hold of the complexity. That was no easy task at all! Furthermore we are using many of the pictures of Roy’s mapping sheet in the Footprint WIKI. But I’m not sure if they are free to use. Therefore I don’t share digital versions of our handouts.
The students draw the footprints per hand using the German version of this template.
It’s nice when the students get new insights into their learning process at the placement.
I’m looking forward to discuss the footprints of emergence with you and Jenny Mackness at Lancaster during the 10. Networked Learning conference.
