Traditional “chalk and talk” lecture-style classrooms are quickly evolving to become student-centred, technology-rich flexible learning environments that support active and collaborative learning. An active learning environment facilitates greater collaboration between tutor and learner by the introduction of student-centred pedagogy and supporting learning technologies. It is now recognised that using an active learning approach results in greater student engagement, retention and success. There are many potential challenges to adopting an active learning approach. None more so than, what happens if it all goes wrong? Therefore, it is vital for tutors to be effective and familiar with the use of technology to support active learning in conjunction with new pedagogies and room facilities. This presentation will examine the affordance of using an active learning approach to enhance the student experience. Central to the theme of the presentation will be the state of the art active learning room within the Institute of Management, University of Bolton facilitated by Sony Vision Exchange and Ubicast lecture capture. Lecture capture systems provide opportunities for students to review lecture content at any time. Delegates will be encouraged to engage in discussion around how to embed active learning in their teaching and in particular the use of the Sony Vision Exchange suite.
