E-learning is a fantastic way to inject your teaching with innovative and student-friendly formats. Follow these links to learn more about using e-tools in university settings.
“Clickers” or audience response systems are devices that can be used to complement traditional teaching methods to actively involve large groups of students in the teaching process. They can serve to encourage students to think about and get involved in class. “Clicker” sets can be borrowed Monday to Friday from 10:00 to 17:00. Simply report to the support desk in the library on level B4. You will find further information and the relevant booking form on the Communications, Information, Media Centre (KIM) website. Feel free to contact us at any time if you have questions.
Flipped classroom - peer instruction
The “flipped classroom” teaching-learning-method (macro method) consists of three fundamental stages that will help your students to effectively retain the course material: the individual learning stage, regular testing and in-depth, face-to-face classes. The idea is for students to utilise digital self-study tools to acquire the relevant knowledge, followed by a face-to-face, in-depth discussion in class for further consolidation. Peer instruction was developed for the face-to-face stage by the Harvard professor Eric Mazur.
