This is a case study of one of the University’s funded pilot Flipping Projects
Dr Fabio Nemetz from the Department of Computer Science at the University of Bath, leads this video looking at the question of why students should attend your lecture, with contributions from students and footage of other teachers at the University. This video is part of a set in which Fabio and his students discuss techniques he uses to try to make lectures more engaging.
Peter wrote small piece on his approach and philosophy to teaching with a copy made available on his blog. Here is an extract:
I have taught at Bath for just over 5 years across all years of Physics programmes: lecture courses, laboratories, tutorials and research projects. And have been an active member of the Department SSLC for the past two years. My objective is to get my students actively engaged with their learning. My role is to be a catalyst for student learning, primarily by acting as a facilitator who provides a well-defined, encouraging and challenging environment for them to work in. I achieve this through impediment free teaching and active teaching strategies.
