Classroom teaching resources
While an ever-increasing amount of educational resources are provided digitally, there are still many occasions in which teachers can use physical resources to facilitate learning activities in seminars and even in lectures.
Often a good way to get students thinking is to get them writing or drawing. This can be really helpful to focus groups on tasks such as brainstorming, organising information, drawing diagrams, defining and relating concepts, presenting arguments, solving multi-step problems or formulas in groups.
You can obtain the resources you need by contacting DBS Support or DLS support. If the Support team members do not have what you need in their office already, they will place an order for you, so it’s important that you plan what you might need a couple of weeks in advance to ensure that you’re not scrambling to find resources or changing your teaching plan at the last minute.
Suggested resources include:
- Butchers paper or A3 sheets of paper
- Coloured paper
- Coloured index cards and blue tack
- Flip charts
