  • Yes this guy looks like he;'s part of a 1960s Open University programme (UK TV based lectures). This is not a good example, I would rather have an example of student work showing, e.g., biodiversity in an urban environment, where that work is the product of several students working with each other, discussing, co-learning, and finally producing an artifact to be shown that demonstrates theri work.
