Teaching and Learning
Promoting independent learning in large-group teaching.
Often via web-delivered self- study units, and the use of structured online discussion forums ("Wikis").
I persue a general philosophy that graduate-level skills are developed best in an environment in which students have to take responsibility for all components of their studies.
This often means replacing "traditional" lectures (which arguably promote passivity) with directed self-study and group problem solving tasks, in which there is planty of feedback in order that students have incentive to engage with their work.
