Faculty of Science Teaching Tips Seminars: George -- Blackboard or black boards – back to basics

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.  


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 don’t
know the answer but argue we shouldn’t 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.
