Challenge of teaching diverse group
while it is possible to expose students to a range of technologies, doing so in the context of a weekly one hour lecture to a large group only scratches the surface of what can be done with any of these applications. given the diversity of our students technical expertise, and again the sheer size of the cohort in front of me, I can usually only guess the level and pace at which to pitch the content. In this context students have only a very limited opportunity to explore that technology for themselves.
From a letter to Quality Promotion Office NUIM from Angela Rickard: June 2010
