In episode 1, Dom Pates, James Rutherford & Dr. Ivan Sikora are in conversation with two academics from City, University of London. Both are practising lecturers and have been using digital technology in a variety of online delivery modes.
Dr. Rebecca Wells has experience of teaching on a live multi modal course on Food Policy with 6 other UK universities, before the term hybrid was widely adopted. Dr. Jane Secker teaches on Masters course for academics and has adopted virtual classroom tools for online blended delivery.
Our conversation covered their research into hybrid teaching and in particular, their insights from a recent literature review and first hand experience as lecturers. What seems to be key is the need for group work and interaction amongst all participants as well as the need for academics to embrace new technology and carry that extra load in making the hybrid sessions effective for students.
