Large group teaching
About this topic
As pedagogy increasingly highlights the importance for student centred approaches to learning, large group teaching is often considered one of the biggest challenges of Higher Education.
This topic offers examples of best practice within large group teaching, both in terms of case studies of embedded practice and also as standalone pedagogic theory, placing learning in a social context.
It also showcases creative ideas that allow students to take a more active role in lectures, including examples that aim to demonstrate how large student groups can be utilised as a resource instead of being considered a challenge.
