Intuitive Resources @ UWE

I have previously blogged about a project entitled Intuitive Resources. The project aims to create non-linear learning resources to aid students with various learning styles and to be used in conjunction with a flipped classroom approach.

At UWE, I have been working with Samantha Orgon a Senior Lecturer in Building Surveying. We have developed a simple yet effective resource aimed at pre-sessional students to learn the basics of layout and sketching. A good example of a resource that will allow Samantha to move quickly on to more complex tasks with the students, letting the resource cover basic tasks at a time and place to suit the student. The resources were created using a standard handheld stills camera and no editing took place after the filming. The aim was to ensure clear information was created for the students, without costing large amounts of time and money to create. We intend on improving and creating more resources in the future.

If you would like to know more or produce your own Intuitive Resources please contact me.

Phasing Out Lectures

A University’s Success with Flipped Learning Began by Phasing Out Lectures

This short article highlights how a University in Australia is starting to replace standard lectures with flipped content and delivery. This move is interesting as it not only reinforces the flipped classroom model now used by so many education institutions, but also promotes the use of Active Classrooms or Technology Enhanced Classrooms. We posted about UWE’s steps into active classrooms HERE early in the year.
