Using Vevox as a back-channel for student Q&As

Dr Chris Graham, Director of Digital Learning in Maths, Stats and Physics, explains how he uses the Q&A functionality in Vevox as a channel for student questions during lectures, how he has refined his approach to responding to questions during the lecture, and how students have reacted positively to the option to ask questions anonymously.

Data Ethics: Are there globally accepted ethical principles around data?

Lee Fawcett, Senior Lecturer in Maths, Stats and Physics, discusses how he collaborated with the University of Florida to develop a short virtual exchange course around the use/misuse of data – enabling students to collaborate with overseas students, while also addressing inequalities relating to physical mobility opportunities and embedding intercultural awareness into the undergraduate curriculum.

Community Watch-along

Using the screen sharing function created an online cinema or community watch-along for teaching material that will support student engagement with asynchronous material. This activity helped students to organise themselves better, and also to discuss with each other in real time and build connections with other students.

Using an iPad as a Visualiser

Used an iPad connected directly to a computer in order to handwrite solutions for both lecture material and problems classes. For a recorded lecture, the program OBS Studio is used. Prompts were made throughout to check all students could see the material and could follow along with the learning.
