Tim Holland – Lecturer (Intercultural Communication) – Curtin College

Since early 2016, Navitas teachers globally have participated in more than 14,000 hours of professional development in courses run by L&T Services.

Three months after the end of their course, participants are asked to consider what changes they have made to their practice. This series invites those teachers to share a learning and teaching challenge and their strategies and learnings from the process.

Each session includes Q&A discussion with the presenter and other attendees to help you connect with others in the learning and teaching community.

In this event, Tim Holland will discuss the use of recording tools such as Screencast-O-Matic as a way to address the problem of having too many students presenting on the same day. In his communications unit this option is usually reserved for students who can’t attend class or who have psychological barriers to public speaking. He will reflect on the balanced assessment approach for video screen-captured presentations and in-class presentations and offer his evaluations of this application.
