This workshop will introduce participants to the new Echo360 Active Learning Platform (ALP) and demonstrate how to use its features to design interactive and engaging lectures. Participants will

  • familiarise themselves with ALP and its interactive features
  • learn about its impact and effects on student engagement and learning (both staff- and student-perceived)
  • experience an interactive live streamed lecture as students
  • explore and develop ideas on how they can make use of ALP features in their teaching

Everyone is welcome to attend. We invite all teaching staff; anyone interested in trying new interactive teaching techniques; those already delivering interactive lectures with other tools; and those who want to design for student engagement.

Bring your own laptop or device, or live stream!
