Highlights from CTLE Workshop: Student-Centred Teaching and Learning

On 10 October, Prof. Xinjie Yu, creator of Tsinghua University’s first MOOC course, ‘Principles of Electric Circuit’, gave a presentation entitled ‘Student-centred teaching and learning’. The workshop attracted over 35 academic staff members.

During the lecture, Prof. Yu shared how his MOOC course, ‘Principles of Electric Circuit’, a compulsory course for science and engineering students, became popular among students from all over the world. He also shared with UM faculty members how to incorporate MOOC and other online resources into their teaching in order to enhance the experience of teaching and learning.

In addition, he argued that nowadays both teachers and students could easily access internet resources, thus making it extra important for teachers to find out what our learners don’t understand and to tackle those areas. By using Rain classroom and flipped modes, teachers could turn teaching and learning from passive to active, and students would not just phub but, instead, look up and at teachers.

澳門大學教與學優化中心在10月10日邀請了來自國內清華大學〝電路原理〞慕課課程的負責人于歆杰教授,以“學生為中心的教與學“為題進行演講,吸引近35位教學人員出席。

于教授在演講中談到他的〝電路原理〞慕課課程如何吸引世界各地眾多學生參與;他也和澳大老師們分享了怎樣翻轉課堂、應用不同的教學資源等方法,以改善教與學的質量。

他指出,由於現今學生和老師都能輕易地在網路上找到共同的教學資源,導致傳統的教學模式變得次要,更重要是讓老師知道學生不明白的地方加以改善。通過雨課堂這樣的工具、翻轉課堂的模式,老師能讓教學由被動變為主動,令學生不再低頭滑手機,而是抬頭聽課。
