Transforming Education: Improving learning in lectures
Full-day workshop | $290 + GST
About the workshop
This full-day workshop focuses on a range of strategies that organisations and teachers can utilise to enhance student engagement and student learning in large lectures, including:
- Developing learning goals
- Enhancing engagement in large classes
- Developing formative assessment practices
The facilitators, Dr Ben Kennedy and Dr Erik Brogt from the University of Canterbury, have developed this intensive, highly-interactive workshop to include a range of group activities, and anticipate that participants will be able to identify their key priorities for changes in practice as a result of the session.
Participants are also expected to prepare for the workshop by engaging in the pre-workshop activities.
This workshop is ideally suited to educators involved in lecturing large classes across all disciplines. Educators in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics may find these workshops particularly relevant.
The workshop is based on the recently completed National Project Fund project Transforming Tertiary Science Education led by Dr Ben Kennedy et al., from the University of Canterbury.
This Commissioned Project adapted the successful North American Carl Wieman Science Education Initiative (CWSEI) model to the New Zealand tertiary system.
