CEIC Experiential Learning Events
We have now completed our third successful Experiential Learning Event (ELE).
At Court Colman in Bridgend over two days and one night.
The aim being to encourage participants to think differently, to look at innovation and to start to work in collaboration with others outside their Organisation.
By the end of the second day Communities of practice (CoP’s) were being formed with representatives from various organisations and regions. Many of the participants were arranging to contact each other to share ideas and work on challenges before the next cohort days in November.
Organisations that attended this latest ELE included:
Pembrokeshire Council; Pembrokeshire College; Pembrokeshire Care society; Coastal Housing; Hywel Dda University Health Board & Swansea Bay University Health Board.
Feedback from these has been extremely positive.
What did you take from the event?
“So much learning – I feel refreshed and inspired and at just the right time in service improvement to put these innovation tools into practice. It has re-established for me the importance of doing this.
Innovation – you need to make time for it.”
In what ways do you think you might use that learning in practice?
“It was useful to engage and network with a range of professionals with an impressive skill set and work in partnership in solving problems.
The exercises demonstrated the importance of planning, utilising team members’ skills, working and communicating together and time management.”
Experience of the event
“I got to know the participants better through the activities and how they respond to tasks.
I learned that quick fire collective activities can be extremely productive and also iterative – it’s easy to reflect and return to/amend something concrete.”
