QUT Mathematical Sciences Seminar series, November 1 2013
Traditionally at QUT, mathematics and statistics are taught using a facetoface lecture/tutorial model involving large lecture classes for around 1/2 to 3/4 of the time and smaller group tutorials for the remainder of the time. This is also one of the main models for teaching at other campusbased institutions. Recently, in response to (learning) technology advances and changes in the ways learners seek education, QUT has made a significant commitment to a “Digital Transformation” project across the university. In this seminar I will present a technical overview, with some demonstrations, of a pilot project that seeks to investigate how digital transformation might work in a QUT mathematics or statistics subject. In particular, I will discuss the use of tablet PC technology and specialist software to produce video learning packages. This approach has been trialled in a transition level mathematics unit this semester. I will also cover integration of these learning packages with QUTs Learning Management System “Blackboard”. This seminar is a technical preview to another talk I will give early in the new year that will look at the impact of the altered learning experience on student outcomes, feedback and the unit itself.
Clipping is a handy way to collect and organize the most important slides from a presentation. You can keep your great finds in clipboards organized around topics.
