Refreshing your lectures
Sheffield Hallam staff have shared flexible approaches to using lecture theatres to engage student actively in their learning. Lecture theatres accommodate the use of a range of learning technologies that support in-session interactivity.
Technology can be used to provide greater connectivity to people and information within the lecture theatre and to networks and events that occur outside of the physical space and allocated time.
Key pages associated with this theme include:
- Beyond teacher-directed learning
- Flexible learning in the lecture theatre
- ‘Turn-and-learn seating’
- Using technology to support interaction
- Integrated voting systems.
- Electronic Voting Systems (EVS)
- Social Media Backchannel – Twitter (or Twitter external site) can be used to establish a ‘back-channel’ through which students can post and answer questions and seek clarification without disrupting the flow of the session.

- Ideas to Inspire Active Lectures
- Stimulating participation in lectures via mobile devices – Ben Abell
We are developing this page with academics from across the University. If you would like to share your own experience or knowledge of large group teaching in lecture theatres please share these with us or let us know what you would like to know.
