Teaching and Learning Activities: expanding the repertoire to support student learning
Magennis, Saranne and Farrell, Alison (2005) Teaching and Learning Activities: expanding the repertoire to support student learning. Emerging Issues in the Practice of University Learning and Teaching, 1 .
This chapter reports on the use of a practical exercise to help lecturers to consider expanding the repertoire of activities that they use in their teaching. It sets the discussion within the framework of a particular set of assumptions about the nature of higher education and the characteristics of teaching in a higher education context. It outlines the instrument and the exercises used with participants in the workshops for academic staff from three higher education campuses. It includes observations about the processes that occurred. The chapter concludes by outlining the value of the exercise, suggesting practical ways it can be used at individual and group level, both by lecturers and staff developers, and offering suggestions for further work.
