Webinar: Supporting lectures with online pre-lecture resources: design and implementation
Wednesday, January 26, 2011 from 1:10 PM to 2:00 PM (GMT)
Title: Supporting lectures with online pre-lecture resources: design and implementation
This presentation will outline the use of online pre-lecture resources to supporting in-lecture material. The design rationale is to develop a cyclical approach between online resources and lectures, so that the two are mutually dependent. The aim of the resources are to introduce students to some key ideas and terminology prior to the lecture, so that their working memory during the lecture can focus on application
and integration, rather than familiarising with new terminology. These had a short quiz associated with them which was linked to the gradebook in the VLE. Some design principles behind developing these (and any) e-learning resources will be presented, along with implementation strategy and some analysis of the effect of using these resources with my own students.
