The Demise of the Lecture

Dr Steven Proud (University of Bristol) 'The Demise of the Lecture'.

Date: Wednesday 29th Nov 2-3.30pm
Location: Room S0.09

Is Lecture Capture killing the traditional lectures? In this talk, Steve will explore whether lectures remain relevant in an increasingly digital world, and how pedagogical techniques can be used within lectures to enable students to develop higher level skills.

Lectures can still be considered an important method of transmitting knowledge from lecturer to student, despite the growth of certain technologies (as lecture capture) which may make lecture attendance less valuable.

Steve is Senior Teaching Fellow at the University of Bristol, his research considers the economics of education and his main areas of interest include the effect of child's peer group on their academic outcomes and the stability of school quality measures in school leagues tables. More recent research has focussed on pedagogical improvements within the teaching of Economics in Higher Education.

Dr Fabio Arico (UEA, National Fellow Higher Education Academy 2017) 'Promoting Active Learning through Peer-Instruction and Self-Assessment: Design, Delivery, and Evaluation'.

Date: Wednesday 15th Nov 3-4.30pm
Location: Room S0.09

Dr Fabio Aricò is a Senior Lecturer in Macroeconomics at the University of East Anglia and he was named National Teaching Fellow by the Higher Education Academy in 2017 as recognition for his outstanding teaching.

Fabio is committed to increase student confidence by developing self-assessment skills and promoting self-regulatory learning behaviours. Fabio uses learning technologies to communicate with students and deliver a personalised dialogic experience even in large-class environments. His teaching methods are evidence-based. Consistent empirical evidence demonstrates their effectiveness. Fabio’s pedagogical innovations to foster student self-efficacy received initial support from the HEA through a Teaching Development Grant. On the grounds of his established reputation, HEFCE awarded funding to the University of East Anglia to pilot academic self-efficacy as one of the measures for learning gain. The aim is to evaluate new metrics that shall inform Teaching Excellence Framework assessments.
