Learning autonomy & lecture enhancement in environmental studies


This project aims to develop a flexible computer-based learning package which can be used to enhance lecture presentations and enable students to learn independently. The package will be designed to teach students about the social and political dimensions of environmental issues. It will contain resource materials that can be used by the lecturer in a large theatre, including video clips, sound recordings and overhead projection slides. This material will then be available to students who will be able to revise lecture material in their own time, explore aspects of it in more depth, and interactively access references, information and primary material to help them with assignments. The package will be designed to be used by students individually and in small groups.
