Abstract

This paper discusses an innovative approach to engaging students in two large core compulsory first year units. The approach aims to provide an effective learning environment that promotes student engagement by combining Laurillard's conversational framework, a commitment to active learning, and a blended delivery method. The paper explains our approach, the theory that sustains it, and details some of the student responses to it.
