Alex, Karl & Terese have been investigating how audience voting systems can be used to enhance learning in lectures, in particular, developing understanding of key biological concepts for students without Biology A levels.
How it works
Alex & Karl identified Tophat as a potentially useful tool, as it provides a platform for students to communicate and interact actively with their course materials. Several types of questions and quizzes were created to fit around the material, providing students with an effective way of communicating their understanding to the lecturer. The lecturer is then able to give immediate feedback to students.
Alex elaborates further on this project further.
Impact of project to be fully recognised in semester 2, 2019.
