The College's new Learning and Teaching Strategy encourages the use of more active learning techniques in our teaching. This challenge ran from July to September 2018 in order to highlight and share examples of active learning techniques already being used in teaching across the Faculty. A summary of all of the examples of active learning that were submitted to the Challenge is available in the Active Learning Showcase.

During the challenge, staff were encouraged to review Panopto recordings of their teaching, looking for examples of active learning practice they would like to share. They were then challenged to make a new video showcasing their active learning technique. Help in using the Panopto editing facilities to prepare these video clips was provided by the FoNS AV Support Team and the FoNS Learning Technology Team, including a number of drop-in help sessions held during August.

The Challenge concluded with a Showcase Event where staff from across College gathered to view the entries to the Challenge and discuss ways of implementing active learning techniques.

All the Challenge entries are now available to view in the Active Learning Showcase. Hopefully these will inspire further take-up of active learning techniques.
