Camilla Audia and James Porter describe the success of their learning experiment following the active learning techniques used in a Horizons module.
Inspired by the innovative teaching on Horizons Global Challenges 2018-19 module The World Today, a group of academics at King's College London recently embarked on a learning experiment with their class of Master's students. Their reflections on the session can now be found on Change Makers blog http://livelovelearn.education.
Dr Camilla Audia explains her rationale for introducing new teaching and learning techniques within the Environmental Science and Policy Master's module at King’s College London:
"I had read about the Change Makers ‘live tableau’ educational initiative at Imperial College, where students have to think creatively, quickly, and decisively on how to represent real-world problems such as clean water and sanitation, hunger, poverty and gender equality, using only their minds, bodies, and of course whatever is easily accessible around them.... So, I pitched the idea of a live tableau and James [the module leader] was on board."
