7 October 2015: Outdoor sensors for realtime data in e-learning activities
Presenter: A/Prof. Kim Bryceson (University of Queensland)
Hosted by Professor Geoffrey Crisp, Dean Learning and Teaching, RMIT University and Dr Mathew Hillier, Institute for Teaching and Learning Innovation, University of Queensland, Australia. starting 07:00AM UTC/GMT. Duration xx Minutes.
Students today use electronic equipment to access information as never before. This session explores the idea that the availability of real time biophysical data from strategically placed outdoor multisensor mesh networks on the UQ Gatton Campus and Farm Enterprises - and using these to develop problem based e-learning modules, will bring the outside biophysical environment into the students’ world in an interactive, constantly changing and engaging visual way. This is about bringing the environment into the classroom.
