'Creating a Generative Learning Object (GLO) for Classics: working in
an 'ill-structured' environment (and getting students to think!)'


SC-HCA and RLO-CETL report on current developmental work on their
"Guided Confusion" GLO. It replicates humanities teaching processes of
developing critical thinking skills through student engagement with,
and evaluation of, multiple scholarly interpretations. "Guided
Confusion" is easily customisable for use within a variety of learning
environments and disciplines: its first instantiation is a commentary
on the Altar of Pergamum.

The seminar will be followed by wine and refreshments.
