Facilitating Equal Interaction Opportunities

Particularly when faced with large cohorts, providing students with equal interaction opportunities can be challenging for lecturers to facilitate. With the focus on engagement enshrined by the York Pedagogy, this webinar will explore the range of tools which the University of York centrally supports for facilitating equal interaction opportunities and soliciting student feedback.

The session will draw upon case studies which explore 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.

Sections 4 and 5 of the York Technology-Enhanced Learning Handbook complement this webinar (
