Engaging Students: Leveraging on competition and collaboration

Image
Body
Engaging students can be quite challenging, especially in courses where class sizes are high. The speaker will share some techniques he has used in his classes to encourage engagement and participation in the classroom. The techniques leverage on competition and collaboration in the classroom. Students first engage in some form of healthy competition which sparks student interest in a topic, then reflect on the lessons from the competition, and then finally collaborate by sharing their self-discovery with others, which can lead to great synergies in learning.

Utilising Generative AI in Assessment Design

Body
The integration of Generative AI into assessments in higher education has led to concerns over their validity among the teaching staff. Despite the many benefits of Generative AI, some fear that it will reduce the need for critical engagement that is key to deep and meaningful learning. Given the near impossibility for it to be out-designed, the best option available would be to design assessment tasks around it. Drawing on a number of case studies of top universities around the world, this seminar discusses strategies on how Gen AI can be implemented in assessment to a varying extent across different academic disciplines to foster student empowerment and engagement.
