We're excited to be kicking-off Talking Teaching this year with presentations from Caroline Clewley and James Campbell.
Caroline Clewley will join us to talk about ImpVis - a staff-student partnership project to develop interactive visualisations on abstract STEMM concepts. Over 100 of these visualisations are now in use in modules throughout College. In this talk, Caroline will introduce the new public ImpVis website and discuss how you can obtain visualisations for use in your own modules.
James Campbell will be talking about the development of a gaming based active learning approach using the mobile quiz app Atrivity. Using students as partners the department has adapted and evolved the platform from an application that was more suited to simple rote learning, to a tool for interactive learning. The tool now promotes student self-efficacy and also provides a way for students to monitor their own well-being.
