Designing Interactive Lectures with Echo360 Active Learning Platform

By simulating a large lecture teaching scenario this session 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.

LTX Students As Partners Panel – What We Learnt

“Students as Partners” was the topic of the first LTX event of the year (for those of you unfamiliar, LTX stands for Learning and Teaching Exchange), with a panel of Student Representatives from the Faculty of Business and Economics. The well attended event opened with a brief introduction of how the Student Representatives Program works within the faculty. Continue reading LTX Students As Partners Panel – What We Learnt

LTX – Students As Partners – Student Representatives Panel From FBE

For our first Learning and Teaching Exchange (LTX) event of 2017, we launch ‘Students as Partners’ – a series that will run throughout this year. A key strategy initiative in Connected Experiences of the Learning and Teaching Strategic Framework calls us to ‘promote students as partners and co-creators in their formal learning’.

In this LTX we will hear from a panel of student representatives in FBE that deliver feedback in their faculty, at the unit and department level on student experience and engagement – from group-work to teaching. There will also be an opportunity, in the second half of the event, to engage with the panel, so please bring along any burning questions you might have to do with student representation, and its potential in program development and student experience.

A Learning and Teaching Exchange (LTX) is a chance to connect with colleagues to open conversations about new ideas and strategic initiatives in learning and teaching, and practical ways to implement them. LTXs are a free exchange of ideas aimed at promoting communications across the learning and teaching community at Macquarie. The events are primarily aimed at teaching staff looking for practical ideas that are applicable in their own practice, or different ways to approach new strategic directions. Presenters are mostly practitioners who are implementing these new ideas, along with key champions within the community. We encourage a diversity of presenters, try to involve students as much as possible and involve external speakers from time to time. If you have ideas for an LTX, please contact geraldine.timmins@mq.edu.au.
