Did you always sit at the back in class? Were you bored? Or maybe you were one of the lucky ones who was engaged and inspired by a teacher? Many people have memories and strong views of the teaching they received at school and university. In this show, Dr Catherine Bovill (The University of Edinburgh), AKA Dr Engagement, will explore some of the highs and lows of teachers' attempts to motivate students and make learning more exciting and engaging. In the interests of engagement, active audience participation will be encouraged!
