student feedback
Student feedback
  • “Perfect lecture set up. Perfect course for that matter, I’ve really enjoyed this subject, each maths subject should have this setup” (UQ student, 2004)
  • “It brings the whole lecture virtually anywhere along with you. Loved it. Great approach.” (Swinburne student, 2010)
  • “I found the slides to be vital in my learning” (Swinburne student, 2010)

lecture recording
Lecture recording

Do students still turn up? Case study OR, on campus students

  • Yes! But why?
    • It takes as long to watch a video as it does to attend a live lecture
    • Ability to ask questions and receive immediate answer
    • Easier to learn in company
    • Reinforces study schedule
    • Screencasts are boring

Immediate feedback
  • Advanced Concepts Teaching Space(UQ, with Diane Donovan)
  • 100 pen-enabled screens, SynchronEyes software
  • Test revision sessions

Teaching with Tablets

the sessions
The sessions
  • Students were given (incorrect) solutions to potential test questions, and asked to mark.
  • Students were asked to solve potential test questions
  • Student work was then selected, displayed and discussed
  • Interaction took time

lecturer feedback from usq
Lecturer feedback (from USQ)
  • led to more engagement with technology in general
  • made lectures more dynamic
  • led to a change in teaching approaches
    • “Students are now more involved in contributing”
  • “In terms of how the use has invigorated my teaching. […] For the first time in years I have felt excited about my teaching and that is reflected in how I interact with students. So then they get excited”

student feedback2
Student feedback
  • “Yes, I watched them all. They are fantastic, much better than a typed response.”
  • “Every time I get stuck on something, I’ll go back to a MathsCast, and it makes it a bit easier to go through questions out of a book” .

This student also said that not only does he find maths easier to grasp, but he has even started enjoying it.
