Successful live streaming lecture trial

Fifteen units were part of a successful live streaming lecture pilot in Session 1. When surveyed, students expressed enthusiasm for the Q&A tool, where they could discuss the subject matter content amongst peers.

The interactions continued after the live lectures, with lecturers or PAL leaders clarifying points of confusion in the lecture content. For more information on the pilot, visit the Teche blog.

“As we are now in this new information age, we have to think about how we adapt and how we evolve,” says Professor Sherman Young, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Learning and Teaching). “For teaching, it means we have to think about more than just content. We have to make sure we understand the range of different engagements, not just the authoritative ‘sage on the stage.’ We have to ensure collaboration is built into what we do, and we have to think more broadly than just words.”

Look for more information in future editions.

  1. In future, you will find any students in your class….
    We will be out of human interaction. If you like to live alone… if you do not value the university culture where thousands of students get together not only to gain knowledge but also to see each other and do lots of fun staff… then live streaming is perfect
