The second Teaching Tips seminar will be held this Wednesday. An email should be coming around to all staff from Faculty but doesn’t seem to have arrived yet. Could you spread the word around your Schools please? The topic should be interest to everyone, particularly colleagues who are concerned about falling attendances. Adam Dr Adrian George: Blackboard or black boards back to basics Date: Wednesday 28 March 2012 Time: 1.00pm Venue: Lecture Theatre 2, School of Chemistry Building Full colour powerpoint with lectopia voice-overs is a superb resource for students studying at home but what is most effective when students are in front of you? I dont know the answer but argue we shouldnt get rid of the black boards just yet! There are, however, many aspects of the technology available that can enhance learning of our students. Adrian will look at one of these the use of classroom response devices or KeePads in first year chemistry lectures.
