Learning & Teaching Exchange – exploring student engagement in face to face

It is a cry we often hear:

How do you engage students during face to face lectures? They’re on their devices and physically present but I don’t know that they are mentally present!*

If you feel this shared pain, why not come along to our next Learning and Teaching Exchange?

On Tuesday, 10th November, we will be discussing the challenges that most lecturers face with engagement in lectures.  We will be hearing about avenues explored by Macquarie University academics and work undertaken in the Learning and Teaching Centre’s Faculty Partnership Program to explore ways to address this issue.

Also, find out more about Lecture Tools, which is now integrated with iLearn and Echo360.  (Fun fact: Lecture Tools is the brain-child of Academic, Perry J. Samson.  Read his Educause article on what sparked his inception and determination to create Lecture Tools.)  Lecture Tools offers student engagement by:

  • Answer quizzes and polls
  • Navigate freely between lecture slides
  • Take notes and draw on slides
  • Ask questions digitally to the lecturer
  • Flag confusing slides
  • Bookmark important slides

So now I’m sure that you’re keen as mustard to come along to Learning and Teaching Exchange and want to know the where and when:

  • When: Tuesday, 10th November
  • Time: 1.15 – 2pm
  • Where: C8A (Lincoln Building), Room 310 (Senate Room)
  • Register here
