This week we are delighted to join two communities together, the #LTHEchat community and the #BETTchat community.
A few words about Bett from Bett
“The award-winning #BettChat continues in 2016 driving incredible conversations within the education community. We know that our visitors are located all around the world, so we’ve created an environment for them to interact before the show, through the wonderful world of social media. Centred on the topics and issues at the front of every educator’s mind, BettChat is dedicated to facilitating networking through the industry. Every Tuesday at 4.30pm, we are getting together on Twitter to debate and discuss the most pressing matters in education today. To find out more, please visit our Twitter at @Bett_show and our website at www.bettshow.com”
Bett is a free to attend show! Use this excellent CPD opportunity.
So what is this week all about?
For this tweetchat we will discuss Pedagogic Innovators in Higher Education and explore together the characteristics of pedagogic innovators, the people and the work they do? What enables them to innovate? Where are the challenges? How can we help pedagogic innovators to grow and spread their passion for innovation and how can we all become innovators? As you see there are loads of questions. Let’s explore these together in creative ways.
Today’s chat is linked to Chrissi Nerantzi’s (@chrissinerantzi) #pin project and this particular tweetchat signalises its launch. To find out more about the study, please read the blog post here and study the related information sheet in advance of the chat.

As some of the tweetchat activities will be visual, it would be useful to practise drawing and model making with any resources you have available in advance of the tweetchat. These could be:
- LEGO(R) bricks
- play dough
- pasta shapes
- (cotton) wool or
- a combination of these or anything else
Having some of these resources to hand during the chat will give your experience another dimension. 😉 Check out also the presentation below.
