Harnessing Student Potential: Dr Jess Hall

This is a clip reflecting on the way to make a lecture more effective for students.  Jess discusses how to promote an interaction and engagement with students in a large lecture environment. For example she looks as scaffolding knowledge and methods for checking understanding throughout the lecture.

She supports a pedagogic approach that encourages the use of humour in the lecture for teaching research methods(Field 2014).

She reflects on the appropriateness of a lecture as a suitable teaching method for a practical subject like research methods, which could be better placed in a computer lab environment.
