engage - Enhancing student participation in taught courses through active learning and reflective practices
From Christy Macleod
Presented by Rachel Howell, Lecturer in Sociology / Sustainable Development, School of Social and Political Science & Ana Díaz Vidal, Undergraduate Student, School of Social and Political Sciences
Rachel discusses how she has used active learning exercises and reflective practices to enhance student engagement in large pre-Honours and smaller Honours-level courses. She teaches in Social and Political Science but these activities should hopefully be applicable to non-STEM disciplines more generally. The event includes an opportunity to experience and discuss at least one practice Rachel uses and also participants’ own experience.
