11 episodes

In the ‘HigherEd Heroes’ podcast series, we talk to some of the best teachers at The University of Queensland to discuss ‘what works’ in their classrooms in a jargon-free, non-technical manner. Our objective is to communicate practical advice from the bottom-up to a broad range of teachers about new ideas they may want to integrate into their classrooms and to stimulate open conversations about their everyday practice. Each episode explores what excites students to learn, what keeps them coming back for lectures, and what makes teaching fun for both teachers and students. We hope that you engage in these conversations and (like us) find something in them which inspires you to make small changes that may reward you and your students in big ways.‘ Higher Ed Heroes’ is convened by Dr Seb Kaempf and Dr Al Stark and produced by Anthony Frangi.
