The University Challenge: Technology To Tradition: Teaching With Artefacts
Show and tell is a technique widely used in early education. A more sophisticated name within higher education is teaching with artefacts, introduced in the theoretical foundation. Examples of artefacts, or representations, the preferred term in teaching, are numerous and varied. The use of an artefact, particularly when engaged in e-teaching, adds a dimension and richness to a technology-based session. The opportunity to incorporate artefacts in student feedback is a further potential enhancement. A range of benefits are evident from the theoretical foundation and the opportunity for creative and novel examples is encouraged in the subsequent discussion.
