In all teaching scenarios it is important to think about not only what you want the learners to achieve during the session, but also what the learning environment will be like and whether there are particular challenges which need to be addressed to ensure learning opportunities are optimised. Large group teaching can provide unique challenges to create student engagement and ownership of learning.
This highly interactive masterclass provided a forum to discuss the challenges and explore ways which have been used effectively to support and develop learning in large group scenarios. The resources used during the session are included below.
If you find it easier to speak your thoughts than to type them, you might find it helpful to use speech to text tools when creating feedback for your students. There are several options available, including some you may already have access to without realising it. In this video, we present some of the options and explains why you may need to be careful when using these tools.
The off-campus students’ project was developed 3 years ago after it was identified that retention and achievement levels at university were being affected by whether students chose to live at home rather than move into student housing. This group also intersects strongly with mature students, student parents and student carers who are given their own focus within the project.
A copy of the slides presented during the Masterclass are available below. The HEA has also provided information on Mindful Assessment Design, along with a proforma to be used alongside this framework. There is also an assessment grid to enable you to audit your assessments, and a set of cards to help you redesign your assessments.
