In our course Creative Pedagogies for Active Learning we were asked by our students to share some active learning and teaching tools, we use or recommend. So that they could apply these in their own practice. So this is one from my teaching archives, the year is 2013. Although for the example I updated it […]
As part of our Creative Pedagogies for Active Learning course, we are running a digital storytelling session led by my partner in crime Dr Vicki Dale.
