Dr. Julia Sarju, a lecturer from the Department of Chemistry, has authored a paper for the American Chemical Society and Division of Chemical Education on her experiences of reframing her teaching for fully online delivery. The full paper can be read here.
Dr. Sarju outlines several of the approaches she undertook, these included:
- paying heed to cognitive load and learner flexibility, by breaking up lectures into short videos or alternative mediums which focused on key concepts or learning points;
- deploying video as a means to personalise delivery, and introduce new sequences of learning;
- interleaving key concept videos with tasks – such as multiple choice questions, and discussion board activities;
- replicating some of the interactive aspects of the live lecture by replacing polling conducted via an electronic voting system, with embedded Panopto quizzes within videos.
