The OU centre for STEM pedagogy
Ecoanxiety – the distress related to climate and ecological crises – is increasingly recognised in learners by educators (Hickman et al, 2021), in the media (e.g., BBC Ideas 2021, Rannard, 2022) as well as through programmes of advice and education (e.g., Wright, 2022).
Academics are often interested in using their own research in their teaching – this can be a valuable way of sharing their passion for their subject, connecting students with cutting edge research knowledge, and enabling students to experience authentic science practices.
The ‘Hybrid Digital Material Networked Learning’ project or 'The Mongrel Project’ aimed to explore learning experiences involving networked physical and digital resources.
Geospatial technologies (that underpin services such as Google Earth™, ArcGIS™, remote sensing and GPS) can be used to help students grasp difficult or threshold concepts, such as 3D visualisation, and improve their spatial thinking skills, or ‘spatial literacy’.
