IT students turned the tables last week when they took on the task of teaching staff and other students how to create and run a successful blog. The students organised and ran the whole event, creating an online booking system, teaching resources to be used in the sessions and an advertising campaign. The session was really useful for other students within the college whose courses require them to write a blog and also helped the IT students to improve their communication, organisation and planning skills.
As well as the blog sessions, students ran some Photoshop sessions where staff and students could have their face pasted onto a famous scene or person if they donated £1 to Guide Dogs for the Blind.
A Level student James Norman attended the blog session commenting: “The session was just right and easy to understand. I can’t think of any way to improve.”
IT Tutor Heather Summers explained: “It’s hard to step back and let your students run things, especially when things are going wrong, but it’s great to see them work together to sort things out and achieve their goals”
