Student engagement is widely understood to be vital to student success, and learning is improved when students are curious, inspired and invested in their learning. Learning Futures is committed to helping instructors engage students by creating technology-enabled activities and conditions that are most likely to generate higher quality learning.
Technology-Enabled Learning (TEL) describes the use of technology, platforms, systems and digital content to extend and enhance student-centred learning. The design of TEL environments starts with the consideration of pedagogical principles. The TEL website provides advice and frameworks planning, designing, building, delivering and reviewing subjects.
Active learning views students as active participants in the learning process. It emphasises the role of active engagement in learning environments to promote higher-order, critical thinking and the development of self-regulated learning practices. As such, the adoption of active learning facilitates the delivery of the flipped model of learning that the university has adopted.
