Marginal Learning Gains

If you want to build affiliation (a sense of belonging) and agency (a sense of being able to act in one’s own learning) then amplifying your feedback channels is a great place to focus. The term ‘feedback’ is used in a number of ways and can include references to written and oral feedback, to feedback given and/or feedback received. Feedback is also used to describe reflections on learning and pointers towards next steps in learning aka ‘feedforward’. So if you want to develop your thinking around the topic of feedback, research all of these versions to make sure you access some of the amazing resources, thinking and reflections on the world of feedback.

Charity exhibition: Have a go… I am!

Calling all aspiring and budding artists – for charity

They say that there is an artist in all of us. Now here’s the chance to find out – and raise money for charity at the same time.
This is the fourth of our fantastically successful 12-inch canvas events to be held at Gravelly Barn. Our last one,
two years ago, raised over £12,500 and we want to top that this year.

What you have to do
Buy a 12-inch canvas (£10 fee covers cost of the canvas, hanging and private
view evening) and produce your own work of art. You can use paint, watercolour,
pencil, charcoal, collage, sculpture – in fact any medium you wish, as long as we are
able to hang the canvas normally. You can be as creative as you want.
Entrants will receive an invitation to the Private View and be the first to be able to buy a picture.

Closing date for submissions
April 4

What happens to your painting
Every piece of work will be put on show anonymously during the four-day art
exhibition and will be available for sale at £45 each. All proceeds from the sales will
go to the Hertfordshire Air Ambulance and the Norma Adams Crocus
Tribute Fund at Breakthrough Breast Cancer

Exhibition opening times
Friday May 2 – Sunday May 4 (10.30am – 5pm)
Monday May 5 (10.30am – 4pm)
Private view (by invite only): Thursday May 1 from 6pm-9pm

If you want to buy a canvas, e-mail me and I will arrange for delivery or how to drop them off.

Please pass this on to family, friends or anyone you think might be interested in entering
