Engaging students in teaching and learning activities during class is an ongoing challenge for teachers and a major focus in current teaching issues. Barriers to interacting with students during class can include challenges such as: internal and external student mix; large class sizes; classroom layouts; sensitive content areas; students lacking confidence; and, teachers who are unsure of how to respond to student engagement. This T&L seminar will highlight a number of ‘In-class Interactive Teaching Tools’ that SPH staff are using to overcome some of these barriers and enhance student engagement. The seminar will highlight examples of some of the tools in use in SPH (e.g. Scoopit, Padlet, UQWordcloud, UQPoll) and demonstrate when, why and how they’re being used to enhance student engagement.
