But it’s also an opportunity to develop critical thinking: for example, was Nick Carraway really a reliable narrator? Plus, ELA gives students a medium for self-expression and can be the start of a life-long love of literature.

6 Videos for Engaging Science Courses

By Suzanna Taylor on Aug 19, 2020 7:36:53 AM

A good science course explains complex concepts in simple terms, allows learners to explore real world examples, and sparks curiosity so that students are motivated to discover more. Many of us can pinpoint our love for the subject to one or two discoveries: watching Neil Armstrong land on the moon, seeing a butterfly emerge from its chrysalis, or witnessing an explosive chemical reaction. It’s these ‘aha’ moments that can really have an impact in the classroom and on students’ academic careers.

Celebrating International Youth Day with Inspirational Videos

By Suzanna Taylor on Aug 11, 2020 1:09:38 PM

The theme of International Youth Day 2020 is youth engagement for global action. This year, we’re celebrating the work that young people have done to enrich and improve political institutions and processes on a local, national, and global level. Youth engagement is vital because it helps to “increase the fairness of political processes by reducing democratic deficits, contributes to better and more sustainable policies, and also has symbolic importance that can further contribute to restoring trust in public institutions, especially among youth” (source).

In the not-so-distant past, higher education lectures were almost entirely instructor-led with a heavy focus on written learning materials. Students would spend hours of their week trying to absorb long and complex texts, regardless of their preferred learning style. Then, they would sit in a lecture hall and listen to a professor talk while they listened, often with little audience interaction. For some, this was an effective and enjoyable way to learn but, for many others, it wasn’t quite so engaging.
