Show, Tell and Talk – Designing active learning sessions – how can we engage students with online materials to complement the in-person experience? (online event)
February 8 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
This Zoom workshop, open to all staff and students, will explore how can we engage students with online materials to complement the in-person experience.
Contributions include/Contributor abstracts:
Professor Paul Wyatt (School of Chemistry)
This presentation will describe how live teaching can work when all the content is delivered asynchronously online. The live in-person lectures explore the content. We will discuss how attending the in-person lectures can be made to bring value to the students’ experience – so that they attend – but just watching RePlay afterwards really isn’t the same. We discuss how the sessions are made dynamic and interesting for students and, crucially, how the students themselves have agency in those lectures to encourage them to come along and take part!
Digital Education Office representatives
Members of the Digital Education Office (DEO) will be briefly discussing different ways you can engage your students with online materials. Eliana Osorio Saez will be discussing tips to build a vibrant online community. Martin Nutbeem will talk about the importance of accessibility and Blackboard Ally stats around numbers of alternative formats downloaded and individual students downloading them. Finally, David Morgan will be sharing his interactive learning materials decision tree, to help users navigate the numerous resources the DEO support across various platforms. If you have any further questions, you can also contact the DEO via email firstname.lastname@example.org
Louise Howson (Lecturer in Academic Development)
This presentation will explore how the PGCAP has moved to multimodal workshop delivery with workshops taking place in person, synchronously online, and through asynchronous activities. Louise Howson will be discussing how the programme ensures parity of experience within these three differing workshop models through collaborative planning and delivery. Examples of activities common to all modes of delivery will be shared as well as feedback from the current PGCAP unit 2 cohort about their experiences.
Malaq-Neo Daniel (Undergraduate student – School of Chemistry)
Understanding how the Implementation of Innovative Blended Learning Methods, alongside Emerging Post-COVID-19 Teaching Styles has affected Learning for Second Year Undergraduates in the School of Chemistry. This presentation by Undergraduate student Malaq will outline his self-directed project evaluating how teaching styles in the School of Chemistry varied during the implementation of the newly structured chemistry course and through emerging post-COVID-19 teaching. This ‘Teaching Audit’ will determine how students interpret new course structures and various teaching styles across optional and mandatory units. The project aims to analyse the relationship between students interpretation of new blended learning approaches with lecturers’ interpretation of their teaching methods and how this affects students learning. Malaq will explore what provisional findings and cross-disciplinary learnings have emerged from this project.
