“In Kahoot!s: Strategies for Utilising Spontaneous Electronic Feedback in Lectures”.
Kahoot! Describes itself as “a free game-based learning platform for teachers of awesome and classroom superheroes”. Who among us wouldn’t want to be a teacher of awesome? Kahoot! allows for real-time input from any student in your lecturer with access to a laptop, iPad, or smart-phone, allowing you to run polls and quizzes inside lectures, or even generate material for them to tackle outside the lecture.
In this session I shall introduce you to Kahoot!, and offer suggestions as to how you can include this learning tool in your own teaching in ways that are both pedagogically sound and appreciated by your audience.

The Connected Curriculum
Undergraduate research features prominently in the upcoming university education strategy. In this seminar I will be presenting and discussing the connected curriculum approach developed by UCL that provides a framework of linking student’s learning with their participation in research as well as connections between disciplines, years of student and between staff and students.
