Christopher C. Tisdell Profile

User's Picture

<p>“With more than a million YouTube hits, Dr Chris Tisdell is the equivalent of a best-selling author or chart-topping musician. And the unlikely subject of this mass popularity? University mathematics.” [Sydney Morning Herald, 14/6/2012 <a href="http://ow.ly/o7gti">http://ow.ly/o7gti</a>].</p>
<p>Chris Tisdell has been inspiring, motivating and engaging large mathematics classes at UNSW, Sydney for over a decade. His lectures are performance-like, with emphasis on contextualisation, clarity in presentation and a strong connection between student and teacher. </p>
<p>He blends the live experience with out-of-class learning, underpinned by flexibility, sharing and openness. Enabling this has been his creation, freely sharing and management of future-oriented online learning resources, known as Open Educational Resources (OER). They are designed to empower learners by granting them unlimited access to knowledge at a time, location and pace that suits their needs. This includes: hundreds of YouTube educational videos of his lectures and tutorials; an etextbook with each section strategically linked with his online videos; and live interactive classes streamed over the internet. </p>
<p>His approach has changed the way students learn mathematics, moving from a traditional closed classroom environment to an open, flexible and forward-looking learning model.</p>
<p>Indicators of esteem include: a prestigious educational partnership with Google; an etextbook with over 500,000 unique downloads; mathematics videos enjoying millions of hits from over 200 countries; a UNSW Vice-Chancellor’s Award for Teaching Excellence; and 100% student satisfaction rating in teaching surveys across 15 different courses at UNSW over eight years.</p>
<p>Chris has been an educational consultant to The Australian Broadcasting Corporation and has advised the Chief Scientist of Australia on educational policy.</p>
