Elevating University Lectures With Technology

Sep 06, 2022

Technology offers a wide range of possibilities to help elevate learning in higher education. However, many universities fail to explore the full potential technology has to offer, using it to simply replicate teaching rather than enabling new ways of learning.

In this guide, we’re going to be explaining just some of the ways in which technology can help elevate your university lectures.

Change the Way of Working

A Skills Commission report found that the way in which people work is changing– and technology is a significant factor in the change.

Their research identified that flexibility is a major characteristic in the way people are working and that technology is changing job roles.

By implementing technology within higher education learning, students can be given all the skills and knowledge needed to prepare them for the working world and the technological changes within it.

Embed Digital Activities

Implementing digital activities and assessments throughout the curriculum allows students to put their technological skills to the test alongside their learning.

It also encourages independent learning and taking new approaches to finding, reading and sorting information, reflecting the changing environment of the working world.

Accommodate All Types of Learning styles

Using technology during university lectures means more students' learning needs can be accommodated compared to traditional learning styles.

Technology provides greater opportunities to explore topics further in depth and students can use alternative learning methods that work best for them.

For example, some students may learn best from taking down handwritten notes on a tablet, while others prefer taking part in interactive activities on their devices.

More Interactivity

Lectures can often be found to be boring and monotonous, especially if the lecturer is just standing at the front of the class talking. Fortunately, technology helps to make learning more interactive, and therefore more engaging. This helps to sharpen critical thinking skills– which are fundamental to the development of analytic reasoning.

Additionally, more interactive learning through technology can quicken the educational process from between 25% and 60%, speeding up the learning process.

Broaden Student Numbers and Demographics

Some adult learners may be put off from attending university due to the distance and times required to attend classes.

For example, individuals who work or look after children may feel they are unable to attend lectures with their limited time, however, technology enables more flexible classes and eliminates the need to attend in-person.

This also allows recruitment of students from outside the UK, which opens up exploration of overseas markets.
