The workshop focuses on the ABL approach to teaching followed at UoN in relation to our typically diverse cohort of students.
Through the workshop you will explore how strategies and active learning methods can provide the flexibility to meet diverse learning needs.
The workshop explores how appropriate use of technologies, both in class and in online elements of ABL can be used to enhance the learning experience of the UoN diverse body of students.
A key theme throughout this workshop is how the UoN teaching approach, ABL, can be used to meet the needs of individual learners and our diverse learning communities.
