Upcoming Webinar: SL 30: Supporting deep learning via weekly ‘reflective provocations’

Tue, September 22, 2020, 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM AEST

In this session, Akbar Khatibi (School of Engineering) will explain how he has been using end-of-week ‘reflective provocations’ to enhance his 4th Year Advanced Aerospace Structures course. Inspired by educational research on podcasting, he has developed a series of 10 minute recordings in which he gives a personal reflection on the week’s activities, summarising the key points and themes. Each episode concludes with an open-ended problem question for students to consider; they are invited to record their own audio/video response to the set question and share them via Canvas. Akbar then curates their answers and integrates them into the next scheduled lecture; this helps him to make links between topics and gives students a more personalised, dynamic learning experience. Akbar will explain what is involved in producing the weekly episodes and curating the student responses in preparation for the live lecture, using a range of real examples to show what can be achieved. He will also share the students’ reactions to the approach and explore potential future adaptations/applications.
