Findings from the PTAS project 'Lecture Recording for Inclusive Education'

The Principal’s Teaching Award Scheme (PTAS) project ‘Lecture Recording for Inclusive Education' examines the impact of lecture recording on the inclusivity of teaching and learning at the university.  The research team has been interviewing students and staff across the institution, reflecting on inclusion (of themselves and others) and commenting on perceived benefits and drawbacks related to the lecture recording service.

In early September 2018, members of the Digital Education research centre travelled to Istanbul to lead a three-day workshop on online teaching for a group of academics displaced to Turkey by the Syria crisis. The visit was orchestrated by Jon Turner, director of the Institute for Academic Development and one of the University of Edinburgh’s key links with the workshop organisers: the Council for At-Risk Academics (Cara - https://www.cara.ngo/).

My research (supervised by Andrew Manches and Michael Seery) is investigating the ways in which STEM students learn abstract scientific concepts requiring visuospatial imagistic reasoning and how this can be supported by digital technology.
