Event description

Description

With so many changes heading our way (new LMS, new curriculum, new programs), there seems to be a general push to reconsider the way we have been teaching students until now. Increasing the quality of the student experience is not a simple task, and sometimes it requires thinking outside of the box. This workshop organised by the Faculty of Engineering and IT Education Innovation Unit is a hands-on session to let you explore design alternatives for your course to increase student engagement and the quality of the experience. The session combines work in your course material with an exchange of ideas with peers to be exposed to alternative ways to promote student engagement. By the end of the session you will have two of your lecture topics redesigned, and listened to a rich variety of ideas and techniques that may be useful to consider for the upcoming semester.

* Lunch is Provided

The objective of this session is to:

  • Experiment with innovative teaching techniques you never considered before.
  • Apply new teaching methods to your course material.
  • Design innovative activities that could be used in one of the courses you teach.

What you need to bring:

  • The learning outcomes of the UoS that you teach. This would be taken from the CUSP or similar platform. The reason to bring this to the workshop is to make sure the new designs are connected or related to these outcomes.
  • The material for one of your lectures (PPT, PDFs, notes, etc.) that you are considering to redesign. Bring all the relevant material including personal notes, exercises you give to the students, etc. You will use them as the starting point for the redesign.

A full runsheet has been circulated via email, if you did not receive a copy please contact feit.eiu@sydney.edu.au
