Here’s the prezi on Learning Rounds which formed the basis for my presentation to SERA 2012 on Weds 21st November and some references if anyone is interested. I prefer sharing them this way rather than on paper – I think it gives a better opportunity for engagement so if you’ve got any comments or reflections on any of this please leave a comment and lets start a learning conversation.
