Activating Student Achievement
Date Friday, Dec 7 Time – Room King
This Panel features a discussion of intriguing approaches to making the learning space more productive for both learners and learning providers. The general themes cover ‘affective reactions’ as drivers of students' achievement levels; getting to know learners’ expertise levels; building non-trivial e-learning applications; and using peer review of assignments to activate students. We look forward to hearing what you can bring to the discussion - and promise that you’ll take something valuable away.
