Learning Sprint 1: Open P2P
Learning Sprint 1: Open P2P
Your first sprint will focus on learning-to-learn from a peer-to-peer perspective (paragogy). We will start with the course induction, then move to situate you within a group (basho) before setting a ‘problem scenario’ that your group will work with until the end of Week 2.
Sprint 1: Aims
In Sprint 1 of this open course, you will do the following:
- Identify some of the key elements that form your own Learning Environments and lend support to the what you are interested in learning
- Gain insight and support from your Basho as a learner, enabling you to form a Personal Learning Network (PLN)
- Learn how to design and develop the parameters of group learning in formal and informal Learning Environments
- Learn how to learn (engaging with some theories of learning and begin to engage with the educational turn in art)
Sprint 1: Learning Outcomes
In Sprint 1 of this open course, you will mainly engage with course learning outcomes 1 and 3, specifically the elements in bold here:
LO1 – creatively respond to artistic assignments and provide constructive feedback that supports peer learning
LO3 – critically reflect upon what you have learned by researching, designing, running and documenting your workshop
Sprint 1: Problem Scenario
The following problem scenario presents a situation that you will engage with during this first Sprint.
I want to openly collaborate with my peers so that we can learn together. But, I don’t know where to start. How might I create a way of working with my peers that will enable the open pooling and sharing of our skills?
Sprint 1: Assignments
You need to complete all of the work specified for both assignments and attend all classes:

When you complete this first Class Assignment, remember to turn in all of the work you’ve done to your individual Portfolio (link).
What more should you do before the end of Week 1?
Please read through this in you own time:
On Friday 23rd September, you should work your own way through the next self-directed Learning Module:
This learning module places the work you will do in the forthcoming Make Gold workshop in an artistic and education context. In particular, it will introduce you to the politics of education in the present day.
Post any notes on what you find out in your own Portfolio.
Week 2 | Workshop: Make Gold
Complete Sprint 1 Assignment on your own
|10:00-12:30 Tuesday 27th September 2022 | 1.03, 7-8 Chambers Street, Central (link to timetable)
We will take part in a Shift/Work workshop called Make Gold. You will each work in your Basho to complete this.
As is the case with most of the workshops you will take part in during this course, Make Gold develops forms of experiential learning and forms part of an artistic practice (Shift/Work). The workshop is metacognitive: taking part in it will teach you how to devise and run your own workshops.
You will be given more information specifically on this workshop after you complete it.
|You have the rest of the week to work individually on completing the Sprint 1 Assignment.
Write a 500 word blogpost in your Portfolio that responds constructively to the Sprint’s problem scenario:
“I want to openly collaborate with my peers so that we can learn together. But, I don’t know where to start. How might I create a way of working with my peers that will enable the open pooling and sharing of our skills?”
Based on your experience of this Sprint so far, what constructive advice would you give to resolve this problem?
Due End of Week 3
