The lecture, titled Perceptions of HE teaching effectiveness: students, lecturers and pedagogy - consensus or conflict?, will take place in room WN004 at 6pm.
Jo, who is Professor of Education, said: “In my lecture, I will focus on recent innovative research which explores students’ perceptions of what constitutes effective teaching in a modern university. Teachers’ definitions of effectiveness, based on work in both schools and universities, will be explored and compared with the perceptions of a range of undergraduate students.”
