About this Event

David Eggleton, Science Policy Research Unit

Students, like many of us, often have challenges with engaging with extremely conceptual course material. Boundary objects can be used to ease the diffusion from literature to mind. We will briefly look at some of the underlying theory of boundary objects. However the bulk of this talk will be experiential and we will look at two potential tools incorporating boundary objects into teaching. The first is the use of playing cards as a tool for teaching machine learning algorithms to non-technical students. The second, which will form the exercise, is Lego serious play™ as a modular tool for visualising concepts.
