An evidence-based teaching model for lectures: from data to practice

Tcherly: A data-informed teaching model

  • Student Feedback System - Captures students’ real-time feedback on their cognitive-affective states from lectures

  • Teacher-facing Dashboard - Presents the aggregate class feedback to the teachers to inform their instructional actions and decisions, such as revising instructional materials or adapting pedagogy.

How it works?

  1. Setting: A classroom or a prerecorded video lecture

  2. Students provide real-time feedback about their cognitive-affective states (i.e., difficult, easy, boring, or engaging) during the lecture

  3. Feedback is aggregated and provided on a teacher dashboard for teacher reflection and informing instructional actions and decisions

StereoChem: An Augmented Reality (AR) app conceptualized & designed by me & my colleague Narasimha Swamy K L

An augmented reality (AR) app, StereoChem: Designed for visualizing augmented 3D molecular models and enhancing the spatial perception of 3D molecules to aid in teaching and learning of stereochemistry concepts.

Understanding systems thinking from the perspectives of experience and diversity

  • Proposed a potential model for developing systems thinking skills in an individual based on experience and diversity.

  • Preliminary findings: Both diversity and experience in domain experts’ research are key to developing systems thinking skills. The roles can even be compensatory, but one cannot fully replace the other.
