CETL Workshop: E-ngaging, E-ffective and E-fficient: Pedagogy with technology for large class teaching

Date: Jan 17, 2012 (Tue)
Time: 12:45pm – 2pm
Venue: Room 321, Run Run Shaw Building
Facilitator: Dr Cathy Gunn

It can be hard to distinguish the hype about new technologies from evidence of their educational merit. University teachers and senior managers need such evidence to inform decisions about what technologies to adopt, and when and why to use them to support good pedagogy in different teaching contexts. One stream of evidence shows how student learning in large classes is being transformed by creative, technology-dependent teaching strategies that can successfully engage each individual learner in the mass-scale and diverse contexts that are common in undergraduate classes.

Participants are invited to review a range of technology enabled teaching, learning and assessment strategies used in large classes, and to critique evidence that suggests they are becoming essential to engage learners, achieve high success rates and keep teaching workloads manageable in the current university context.
