#CEIOS: Active Learning – What does it mean for Cardiff University

#CEIOS Events are organised and run by the CEI Team

The second event in the #CEIOS series, explored the theme of active learning, and what this means at Cardiff University. Some of the questions the event sought to answer were; What does active learning mean? What are the benefits and possible drawbacks for staff and students? What is design for digital learning? Are we encouraging students to take an active part in lectures and seminars?

My ‘active learning’ journey started with finding guest speakers and good-practice examples happening here at the university. I contacted Elizabeth Ellis from the Open University whom I’d seen presenting at the JISC’s Digifest conference (watch her debate here or read a blog post here).  Liz has vast experience in engaging students in design for digital learning, and she was very happy to contribute to our event. You can read more about her perspective on partnering with students in learning /curriculum development here.
