Recap: ELDT Lunchtime Webinar: Facilitating Equal Interaction Opportunities

Over lunchtime on 31st May, the ELDT delivered a webinar on how staff can use technology to provide students with equal interaction opportunities – something which can be challenging for lecturers to facilitate.

With the focus on engagement enshrined by the York Pedagogy, the webinar explored the range of tools which the University of York centrally supports for facilitating equal interaction opportunities and soliciting student feedback.

The session drew upon case studies which explored the harvesting of online module feedback, and also the various technologies available to staff to draw ‘live’ or synchronous electronic feedback from students during class time.
