How to improve student engagement AND win recognition for your teaching: hear from an OLT Award winner

Presented by Louise Lutze-Mann, School of Biotechnology and Biomolecular Sciences

Louise Lutze-Mann (Biotechnology and Biomolecular Sciences) employs achievable strategies to improve student engagement and learning outcomes, as recognised by her 2014 OLT Award for Teaching Excellence. Louise will show her teaching approach, and talk about how she collects and presents evidence of her teaching achievements. This will be of interest to anyone who would like to improve their teaching outcomes, try for a teaching award or collect evidence for promotion.

This is what the OLT has to say about Louise:
Dr Louise Lutze-Mann is a highly engaged and engaging teacher of molecular and cell biology who brings an infectious enthusiasm to her teaching in a diversity of contexts. She consistently works to stimulate critical thinking and independent learning in students and to show the application of problem solving in a research context. Her teaching innovations have primarily been aimed at improving the student experience by providing resources that allow students to explore and reflect on the scientific process, provide exposure to modern techniques, enhance technical skills and underpin the understanding of theory. She has employed student-centred strategies in her teaching to enable students to think more like scientists, has innovated through using educational technology, and has countered resource constraints while deepening learning.
