Box of Broadcasts (BoB)

How to use BoB in your teaching

BoB provides a way to integrate media within your learning and teaching.

  • Promote active learning – Make available recently aired television or radio programmes to give your students access to the most up-do date developments in your subject area.
  • Inspire and engage learners– Provide programmes or clips for students to watch and analyse in the classroom to facilitate engagement and further questioning about key issues and topics from your discipline.
  • Implement a flipped classroom approach- Share a programme or clip for students to watch prior to a session, then discuss further online or in the classroom to enable independent or peer-assisted learning through creating collaborative learning groups.
  • Create authentic learning opportunities – Use broadcast material to set the context for a topic that is relevant to your teaching to encourage deeper learning aimed at applying this learning to real world scenarios.
  • Facilitate student-contributed content – Encourage your students to search the archive of broadcast media and share with fellow students to support and reinforce their learning.
