Abstract

This Plenary aims to draw upon two of the key themes of this year’s NTF Symposium:
• Engendering creative and innovative approaches;
• Interactive lectures and formative assessment opportunities
It aims to introduce a variety of practical ideas to make lectures more creative, engaging and interactive, and in doing so provide opportunities for regular formative assessment as part of the teaching process. It will look at various forms of interaction, leading naturally to formative assessment, which are easy to employ in lecturers, including online examples and physical resources. There will also be opportunities to explore improvements we could make in ‘paired talk’ for maximise learning.
The Plenary will ask participants to reflect upon their own lectures and how they can increase opportunities for inclusion, and how this session could be adapted and applied to their own subjects and setting. It will question whether or not we consider learning from the perspective of the student and the importance of the work of Bruner and others around scaffolding learning and the enactive, iconic, symbolic stages that learners need to explore.
It will go on to look in more details at formative assessment, as part of the assessment process, and look at a bank of examples of good practice which others can draw upon – as well as collecting good practice from participants during the session. This will also be considered in light of the Subject TEF and NSS Survey. Primarily its biggest aim is to be fun and engaging in itself and get everyone involved in the learning!
