Welcome to the Teaching and Learning Forum
I wish to welcome you all to the online Teaching and Learning Forum. I look forward to the interesting reads that are going to arise from this space. Feel free to share your experiences and expertise on, how you handle student assessment, how you handle curriculum design, how you handle technology, and how you handle your classroom and out-of-classroom teaching and learning activities. Whether you are using traditional or modern methods, hitting successes or failures, the community would like to hear about it.
I would also like to encourage university administration staff to participate and share their knowledge of issues that affect teaching and learning. For example, if a certain change in the higher education environment, such as legislation (whether institutional, national or global), administration and management staff are best placed to share details and effects of that change.
Furthermore, feel free to share your envisioned or experienced potential game changers in the way universities operate. Feel free to share the opportunities and threats for teaching and learning that can affect the way lecturers and professors run their daily duties, either at present or in the near/far future.
Join us in this journey to create this database of open knowledge and wisdom, so that we can better serve the learners, both current and future generations. As you blog, it is important to keep in mind the following:
- No teaching and learning approach/activity works the same for each and every student.
- If you have not tried it, do not be quick to judge it’s impact, however constructive criticism is highly recommended.
- A single teaching and learning approach/activity can have a different outcome in dissimilar contexts.
- There is no “best” teaching and learning approach/activity that can be used across all disciplines.
- Measure the success of a teaching and learning approach/activity by how it enhances student learning.
- When you try out ideas that you find on this blog, make sure to adapt the idea(s) to best suit your context, share with us what you did and the outcome, whether it’s a success or a failure.
Happy networking, blogging and commenting to all!! 🙂
