The technology in our teaching spaces is evolving. There’s a bunch of cool features that can help you create quality lecture experiences for students.
For example, did you know that:
- many spaces have document cameras on the lectern that are connected to the displays. You can do things like write or draw by hand, or work with real objects or models, and students will see this on screen and in your recording.
- you can change the camera angle to capture yourself writing on the room’s whiteboards. Plus, it’s streamed to the big screens and captured in your lecture recording.
- in any rooms with lecture capture systems, both you and students can activate the recording functionality any time you like, with just a USB. Super helpful if students are presenting to the class and you want to record it to review when marking.
And, these are just a few of the possibilities!
The Audio Visual Services team offers short sessions on location in teaching rooms to help you make the most of the audio-visual and lecture capture technology. They’re suitable for anyone who is:
- new to teaching at the University and would like an induction
- teaching in newly upgraded space; or
- keen to level up your lecture delivery to provide a better learning experience for students
The sessions are informal, with plenty of hands-on practice and the opportunity to chat about your specific needs. We schedule them for an hour but usually get through the main event in around 30 minutes. You can choose to stay for Q&A and extra hands-on practice or leave if you’re feeling confident.
Sessions are already scheduled for February 2019. Don’t miss out!
