Understanding interactional patterns, preferences, and styles: Putting intercultural communication theory into your practice

In this talk, I’ll firstly pinpoint the key dimensions of culture that are considered to influence our communication (and) behaviour at individual and group levels. We’ll focus on the areas that offer the most useful insights for the academic workplace (including teaching, facilitation, and supervision) and look at some of the resources developed with funding from IATL and WIHEA. These research-based training materials also push participants to reflect on their orientation to the culture of learning and we’ll consider how this impacts on the interactions between students and between students and staff.

Tilting the Classroom: Engaging Students in Large Lectures

There is much discussion currently about flipping the classroom or otherwise making dramatic adjustments to teaching. But for most lecturers, especially those with large classes, this is not practical. My view is that lectures are not inherently bad, and that that there are numerous ways to make them more engaging without dramatic changes. This talk will be about 18 approaches that I use - these work well together, but each can be implemented independently so they can be tried out according to personal taste. There will be lots of examples and some light-touch discussion of how this approach relates to evidence from psychological research on learning.
