Kon Kuiper - teaching and learning case study - flexible learning in Linguistics
Teaching Linguistics for over 30 years continues to drive Professor Kon Kuiper to try new approaches to providing pathways to learning for his students. Matching new technologies to the curriculum has led him to create topic-based mini-lectures and short MP3 audio recordings to meet their learning needs.
"For a student to learn flexibly is essentially saying that not every student learns the same way …. you’ve got to try and see your way clear to thinking, what’s the best way of providing not just presentational material, but practice and opportunities for interaction that suit a whole raft of different kinds of students."
