Social Sciences Teaching and Learning Showcase

The Learning and Development Centre and the Faculty of Social Sciences are pleased to invite you to the next Faculty Teaching and Learning Showcase on Tuesday 25 February at 12:30-3:00pm (Teaching Grid).

Showcase on Reflecting on Large Group Teaching
Active and experiential learning features as one of the HEA Social Science strategic priorities for 2013-14. Many of us do use a range of successful strategies for encouraging active participation, but it can be difficult to effectively translate them to a large class format. In this showcase we will explore how these strategies might impact on the student learning experience in a large group context and how we can make lectures more engaging.

Robin Naylor (Economics – WATE winner 2013) will be sharing some of the teaching techniques that he has been trying out and Ian Tuersley (WMG) will demonstrate how he uses clickers in lectures for participation and feedback.

The event will open with lunch at 12:30pm and presentations will start at 1pm.
