In this next video prepared by Stuart James (Anatomy and Physiology), he talks through how to make your synchronous sessions engaging. As with the other videos, he has prepared a best practice guide to accompany the video. Stuart is a member of our Online Teaching Community of Practice, led by Deanna Horvath (Bachelor of Food & Nutrition).
Stuart James, Aaron McDonald and Heath McGowan (Physiology, Anatomy & Microbiology) presented at the 2020 MoodleMoot Global on how they have been using H5P in the teaching of Anatomy. The link below takes you straight to their presentation:
LTLT’s next introductory workshop on H5P is on Tuesday, 11 August.
With semester 2 teaching officially getting underway last week, subject coordinators are using various media to engage their students. This is a short video from Dr Linda Ward and Dr Fung Lay for their MED3LAB subject where they share some things about themselves, beyond their teaching roles. This has inspired some fun conversations and interactions with the students (who are sharing their hobbies and pictures of their pets) in the LMS ‘Meet & Greet’ forum. A great way of connecting more in the online learning landscape.
Many thanks to Linda Ward and Fung Lay (Biochemistry & Genetics) for this contribution!
This is the next video in the series prepared by Stuart James (Anatomy and Physiology), where he talks about best practice in running synchronous sessions. This video has a supporting guide to further assist you. Stuart is a member of our Online Teaching Community of Practice, led by Deanna Horvath (Bachelor of Food & Nutrition).

In the next video prepared by members of our Online Teaching Community of Practice, Stuart James (Anatomy and Physiology) talks about best practice in preparing for synchronous sessions. He has also prepared a written guide to assist you.
This is the first in a four part series of videos that will cover various aspects of best practice around synchronous sessions.
In this short video Mat Marques (Psychology) describes how he uses assessment and attendance data to personalise communications with students in a large first-year Psychology subject, and how that has improved student engagement.
Many thanks to Kaled Idris-Said (College Ed) for sharing this video.
Subject Week commenced on 7 July with this excellent presentation on ‘Creating and maintaining teacher presence in online learning’ by Amy Larsen and Stuart James (Physiology, Anatomy & Microbiology), chaired by Nauman Saeed (LTLT). The session is full of ideas about how to ensure students stay connected with you, their teachers, but also with each other, to form an online learning community.
Videos from Subject Week, which focussed this semester on engaging students online, have been made available by LTLT on this intranet page.
Curious about how you can use MS Teams to improve student engagement with online learning? Dan Laurence (LTLT) chaired this Subject Week session featuring Leanne Higham (Education) and Zhen He (Computer Science & IT) talking about how they are using MS Teams in their subjects.
You may also be interested in hearing how Magdalena Wajrak (Edith Cowan University) has been using MS Teams to create online lab classes in Chemistry.
Check out Travis Smith’s (Higher Education Lead with Microsoft) blog for more such stories.
Continuing our series of short videos prepared by members of our Online Teaching Community of Practice, led by Deanna Horvath (Bachelor of Food & Nutrition), here Evan Robertson (Chemistry) talks about best practice in formative quizzes to support online learning.
