Congratulations to Simone Poulsen (Project Manager, Learning Futures) who is a recipient of a 2018 Echo360 Academic Champion Grant. As part of the grant program, Simone was invited to represent Griffith at an intensive two-day workshop in Sydney.

The workshop provided the opportunity for grant recipients from various Australian and New Zealand institutions to meet and work on the shared goal of creating a support network and knowledge base to explore ways to assist educators to move beyond lecture capture with Echo360. The grant funds will be used to enable each academic champion to share their knowledge with their institution’s learning and teaching community and to enhance the use of Echo360.

Did you know that Echo360 features tools to create interactive polls, run Q&A sessions and also allows students to highlight sections of a lecture that they find confusing? These features can be used to facilitate active learning experiences and make lectures more engaging for your students.

Simone is super enthusiastic about helping academics get the most out of the platform, so feel free to get in touch with her for advice about ways to implement the technology in your teaching practice.
