Classroom practices and lecture recording

Classroom practices and lecture recording

School: Mathematics

Team Members: George Kinnear, Pamela Docherty, Ross Galloway, Jill MacKay, Susan Rhind

Abstract

The project will operate on two levels. First, it will bring together researchers from three different disciplines to address questions of common concern around characterising classroom practices and the interaction of classroom pedagogy with students' use of lecture recordings. Second, it will support ongoing work on specific questions in each discipline, such as investigation of the effectiveness of flipped classrooms.

The project will begin by employing research assistants to apply the FILL and PORTAAL taxonomies to various recorded lectures, establishing a dataset for further analysis. Coordinated undergraduate projects in each discipline during 2019-20 will contribute further data and analysis, culminating in dissemination activity in 2020.
