Do you want to use Echo360 Active Learning Platform (ALP) in your lectures? Unsure how to start?
I believe that moving from theory to practice is a concern for many lecturers. Certainly, several have expressed this to me.
I would like to see a community of ‘Open Classrooms’ at our University so academics interested in seeing Echo 360 ALP in action can see how it is used by peers and students in situ.
If you are willing to be an ‘Open Classroom’ volunteer and allow colleagues to attend your classes where you make use of ALP, I encourage you to let your peers know of your course, location, date and times they can attend.
If you are willing to share more broadly, the ALP project team has offered the use of the next MyUni Transform News to let colleagues across the university know of your ‘Open Classroom’. Please email your details to the project team.
I hope that we can grow an ‘Open Classroom’ community to support colleagues to:
- see ALP in action in a wide range of settings and subject areas
- get ideas on how to gain the benefits of ALP in their own classrooms, and
- gain confidence by seeing ALP in action.
Thanks in advance.
