Practical pedagogy sessions

What are some of the ways to make lectures more engaging and interactive? Explore the use of audience response and polling systems particularly for large classes.

About this session

While a well-constructed lecture can be a positive learning experience for students, there may be other ways to provide opportunities for more students to contribute.

This could be technology mediated, by using clickers for example. or by making modifications of your teaching strategy.

During this session, a range of practical examples will be shared that could be useful to add to your teaching toolkit.
