Ways of learning
About this topic
While the lecture is a common methodology for teaching in Higher Education, teaching methods and ways of learning extend beyond the lecture theatre.
Opportunities exist to engage students not only in the subject matter of their degree, but in the application of such knowledge and associated skills to problems in the wider world. This can be achieved through:
- research opportunities that build upon existing subject knowledge and enhance professional skills;
- the provision of professional placements or collaborative projects
- imaginative course design and the embedding of effective technology-enhanced teaching methods.
This section provides real examples of this philosophy at work. Imaginative use of on-line resources to support students in the way that they find most easy to engage with; active learning in ‘flipped’ classrooms, solving current and relevant problems; international collaborations where our students work and learn alongside students in other countries and other cultures.
Dr Geraldine Hastings of Cardiff University's School of Healthcare Sciences and Julie Latchem of Cardiff University's School of Journalism Media and Cultural Studies co-present at the Centre for Education Innovation's 2017 Learning & Teaching
