Event Description

Full Description:
ECON1310 is a large first year introductory statistics service course in the School of Economics. Over the last 4 years, the method of delivering lectures has gradually transformed. Initially, two-hour face-to-face lectures were presented to around 400 students twice a week. Now, in 2017 the course is offered fully online with no face-to-face lectures. By reflecting on experiences encountered during this transition, this presentation and workshop will be to highlight:

- Lessons learnt during the transition to a fully online course
- Practical strategies to enable you to transform your existing course to a partially or fully online course
- What works and pitfalls to avoid in making this transition
- Tips on students’ performances, satisfaction, and their learning experiences
- The benefits and value on moving the course fully online from both the students’ and lecturer’s perspectives
- Issues around sustainability, value and utility in relation to quality, time and effort devoted in creating learning materials
- The impact of tutorials and small group learning when there are no live lectures.

Come along with a course in mind that you would like to transform into an online course.

During the session, you will be asked to:
- Reflect on and discuss key presentation topics
- Brainstorm how to transition your individual course online
- Record ideas progressively on worksheets throughout the one hour presentation
