  • CALT Arena Exchange Developing Students' Research Skills using Wikis

    We will discuss introducing wikis as a part of required coursework in two undergraduate economics modules. The wiki project had three main objectives: it gave students an opportunity to do a literature survey or other research, it required them to write analytical prose and it facilitated group work. Since our modules tend to be large in number and our student body quite diverse, students often dont get a chance to write extensively, research or collaborate. The wiki project was a way of getting around this. We will describe the way we set up the wiki activity and present data on student engagement and evaluation of the project

  • UCL Arena Cuts to the Disabled Students' Allowance

    A preliminary discussion about the effects on teaching and learning - with Claire Jamieson and Caroline Holden, Student Disability Services. Following a brief summary of their roles as dyslexia specialists within Student Disability Services (SDS), Claire and Caroline will talk about the way in which Disabled Students' Allowances (DSAs) and the session will focus on the implications for SDS and for UCL as a whole. Discussion will centre on the need for inclusivity and accessibility in the planning and delivery of UCL courses, and ways in which appropriate adjustments can be made to support students with specific learning difficulties. The UCL dyslexia specialists are keen to become involved in any initiatives promoting links between SDS and the development of inclusive teaching and learning practices at UCL. The way in which these links could be facilitated will be open for discussion.

  • UCL Arena EduMedia-Savvy Masterclass

    How do we adapt to serious educational purpose the techniques that education media professionals have developed and honed over the years, now that anyone can get hands on the hardware? We're used to having fifty minutes to present and develop ideas with the expectation that students will see the point by the end, but nobody these days, not even you, has that kind of patience on screen. Whether for better or worse, the world has changed and we need to inspire first and explain after. All in two minutes, not fifty. Cameras, smartphones, tablets, WiFi, projectors - you name it, these days it's within easy reach. But how to use it well to create engaging materials that will genuinely advance students' learning - not so easy! Dr Mike Howarth brings a rare combination of teaching, experience in professionall media production and higher education, producing quality teaching materials with creative efficiency for UCL and elsewhere. But he also wants to pass on the core skills and knowledge to enable colleagues to produce their own resources just as easily. In this masterclass, Mike shows practical ways to organise creative multimedia teaching materials that inform, engage and inspire students. Using what he calls EduMedia-Savvy Teaching mindset, he promotes creative production with time control, variety of structures and a focus on the end-user. Bring your ideas for a teaching resource that you would like to develop, whether it be a brand new idea, a part-formed project or an existing teaching tool. we will work together hands-on to bring these ideas to fruition, either using your own equipment or what we can provide on the day. You will suprise yourself (and your students!) with what you can do in a relatively short time, using these edumedia-savvy teaching strategies.
