Student engagement with active blended learning (ABL): How to ensure the dog doesn’t eat their homework

Maunder, R. (Speaker), Roz Collings (Speaker), Pourseied, K. (Speaker)

Activity: Academic Talks or PresentationsWorkshopResearch

Description

This workshop aims to explore strategies to engage students with ABL. A key feature of ABL is the expectation for students to undertake work outside of class, and be actively involved in face-to-face and online learning. Despite a wealth of pedagogical theory and research supporting this approach, anxieties about student non-engagement remain. During the workshop, participants will review examples of ABL activities and discuss features that may promote or discourage engagement. The emphasis will be on looking at things from the learners’ perspective, and using participants’ own experiences as learners to identify good practice in ABL design.
