At Teach Learn Collaborate Repeat, Cecilia Goria, Digital Learning Director in the Faculty of Arts at the University of Nottingham explains the pedagogical priorities that emerged in the past 18 months and how Talis Elevate supported them.
In the first phase of the pandemic, Cecilia explained it was essential for staff to be able to use a range of digital solutions, and accommodate a wide range of student needs, all while teaching online. It was important to them to enable deep learning around primary and secondary sources, across different resource types.
In the session, Cecilia explores community building and ‘community of inquiry’ which brings together interpersonal interaction, learning design and interaction with content as the educational experience. Talis Elevate was identified as a digital solution to support their community of inquiry and address their pedagogical priorities.
Cecilia shares examples of the use of Talis Elevate, from video to images, text and music scores, and explains how students have interacted with the content. She also explores the analytics available to course leaders about how students have engaged with each resource and for how long.
“It is inclusive and empowering for students, especially the anonymous function. It allows interaction outside class hours, student-led teaching, engagement with primary sources and linking of asynchronous and synchronous teaching” supporting their pedagogical needs at this time, said Cecilia.
