Scientia Education Experience: Communities
The Active Learning Initiative (AL Initiative) was established by Learning Environments (PVCE Portfolio) in March 2019, to help address some of the challenges faced by members of UNSW’s teaching community, including sessional staff, in using and adopting active learning spaces on UNSW’s Kensington campus. The AL Initiative is working with academics and supporting them in adopting and practicing an active learning pedagogy regardless of the physical space.
Joanna will talk about the project initiatives that have been established to assist and support staff who have embraced or wishing to embrace active learning in their course. These include:
• 360-degree interactive tour of an active learning space
• New room signage promoting flexible furniture configuration that supports holding classroom activities within a teaching space
• Active Learning Best Practice Guide v2.0
• Active Learning Framework for Large Cohort Sizes
• Active Learning Classroom Videos
• Active Learning Information Sessions
This presentation aligns with the following UNSW Communities of Practice 'Flipped Classroom'. More information can be found here.
