MSPGH Seminar: 3rd December 2014 – Why don’t students turn up to your lectures?

12.30-1.30pm, Wed 3rd December 2014
Seminar Room 515, Level 5, 207 Bouverie Street, Carlton

Professor David Williams, Professor in Physiology & Associate Dean (Academic), Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences; Program Director of the Bachelor of Biomedicine and Chair, Teaching and Learning Development Committee, The University of Melbourne

Students are time-poor, stressed and anxious, the lectures are large and impersonal and probably at 8am, they are recorded and screen-captured, you can be ‘played back’ at double speed, and unless you are ‘value-adding’ to the didactic experience in your lectures why would they bother getting out of bed? Large classes are the norm in undergraduate education and becoming so in many post-graduate courses.  We will ‘actively’ discuss active learning and the challenges and opportunities (yes there are some) presented by large classes.
