TEF GOLD Teaching: Research informed teaching "pedagogy is not proper research"

Wednesday, 20 June at 12.00pm - 1.00pm

Session Details

Lectures are a common teaching element on undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in Higher Education institutions.  Rises in student cohort sizes in the last thirty years have led to an increase of large class and lecture theatre based teaching. Lectures have been identified in many studies  as being ineffective pedagogical tools for developing conceptual understanding in learners.  This is part thought to be because  the range of more active learning approaches which can be adopted is progressively restricted as class size increases. 

This session will provide examples of ways to 'turn-the -tide' and increase engagement in your lectures, it will also offer you an opportunity to share your own best practice.
