Keynote

Dr Fabio Aricò of University of East Anglia will give the keynote Active Learning Pedagogies to Generate Learning Gain and Confidence Gain in the Classroom

Fabio will outline the principles of an active learning pedagogical approach that combines peer-instruction and self-assessment. The first part of the keynote will demonstrate how these powerful pedagogies can be easily embedded in the formative assessment strategy of large class environments with the aid of learning technologies. The second part will explore how the data emerging from active learning sessions can be employed to evaluate the learning generated in the classroom, as well as students’ sense of confidence in their academic abilities. The final discussion will cover how to adjust this approach for different pedagogical settings.
