A common challenge when we teach in large classes is how to engage students to ensure high-quality learning.We want students to be captivated, enthused and to think deeply about the subject matter, but this can be problematic in a large lecture theatre where students may feel anonymous and it is difficult to meet their individual needs.
Despite the challenges of teaching in large classes, there are many successful teachers who provide memorable, thought-provoking lectures. Join us for this Quality Forum to hear the panel share their strategies for how to engage students, and then join the panel for a further discussion on:
- How can we overcome the challenges of teaching in large lectures?
- How can we make our lectures exciting and promote deep-learning?
- How can we know if students are engaged?
Convenor: Dr Rob Wass, Higher Education Development Centre
- Nicola Beatson, Accounting and Finance (Otago University Student Association award ‘Premier Lecturer, Commerce Division’ in 2017. Winner PhD three-minute thesis competition 2017)
- Dr Brad Hurren, Anatomy (Tertiary Teaching Excellence Award winner 2017)
- Dr Kim Brown, (College of Education, Graduate Research School)
Tea and coffee will be served from 3.15pm and those attending will have an opportunity to ask questions of the panel afterwards.
