Engaging masters students though Blackboard Collaborate

Dr John Francis

This section covered the use of Collaborate for remote learning. Students with travel issues, conflicting engagements and even students from overseas have all benefited from John’s use of Collaborate within his masters course.

John shared some excellent tips and advice on using Collaborate, including:

  • Utilising a split screen to see both your session and your notes or resources
  • Not being afraid of silences and giving students time for reflection
  • Keeping the chat channel open for students who are reluctant to use their mic

Group Discussion

Delegates were invited to discuss how they were using technology within their courses and what technologies, in an ideal world, they would like to see the University invest in.

The results can be viewed on the TEL Me More Padlet page, where readers are welcome to add their own suggestions.

It was widely agreed that the event was a very way of finding out how colleagues are using technology within their courses, as well as for sharing tips and advice. If you would be interested in presenting at similar future events, please email the Technology Enhanced Learning Unit at TEL@worc.ac.uk
