Approaches to Remote Delivery for multicampus teaching

Speaker: Graeme Salter1, Andrew Francis2, Anthony Maeder3, Stephen Weissenhofer4

Affiliation: University of Western Sydney1, University of Western Sydney2, University of Western Sydney3, University of Western Sydney4

Time: Monday 19/07/2010 from 14:00 to 15:00

Venue: Access Grid UWS. Presented from Parramatta (EB.1.32), Campbelltown (26.1.50) and Penrith (Y239).

Abstract: A current issue for university teaching is dealing with student needs and preferences for multimodal delivery - by different media, at different locations, and at varying times. This is even more challenging in the UWS situation of multiple campuses with similar catchment size, and the demographic character of GWS students who are often balancing study with employment and family/community obligations. In this seminar we will share some experiences and discuss future intentions in using UWS mechanisms supporting remote delivery of lectures including Access Grid and Lectopia.
