My copy bookmarked throughout for future reference!

Review of “Student-generated Digital Media in Science Education: Learning, Explaining and Communicating Content” by Garry Hoban, Wendy Nielsen and Alyce Shepherd (Eds.) (2016) London: Routledge. Pp. 274.

I was really excited to be asked to review this edited book focusing on student-centred learning in science using technology and digital media. I recognised many of the authors from the conferences on higher education and science education that I have attended recently and I was keen to read more of their work in this growing field. I wasn’t disappointed! This book provides a rich collection of creative examples of student-generated digital media tasks in science, with lots of great advice for implementing learning activities and assessment tasks.

My book review has just been published in the HERDSA News (The magazine of the Higher Education Research and Development Society of Australasia) volume 38, issue 2, page 26.
