Educators collaborating to innovate: The roles digital technologies can play
As blended learning is now becoming a significant part of higher education, there is a great deal of work to be done to develop these new opportunities for learning and teaching. Teachers are best placed to do this: they are at the front line of development of these new methods because they are with their learners every day, able to discover what works, and what does not. But they cannot do innovation on this scale alone. The keynote demonstrates why it is important that educators, professional development staff and researchers can now design blended learning by collaborating on sharing and testing new digital pedagogies.
Overcoming Challenges in Active Learning Environments
Despite active learning being recognized as a superior method of instruction in the classroom, most college instructors around the world still choose traditional teaching methods. This talk will focus on best practices in active teaching strategies and how students’ perceptions of their own learning are often misleading. The importance of diversity in team-based learning and the challenges associated with assessments in these environments are also discussed.
