AL led projects now up and running

Posted 11th July 2019

On the 27th June 2019, eSTEeM held its first induction for Associate Lecturer (AL) led projects. The standard of the proposals were very high and we were delighted to receive a range of projects all with the common aim of enhancing the student experience in STEM.  We were especially pleased to receive our first jointly led AL and student project (Catherine Halliwell and Cath Brown) further illustrating eSTEeM's commitment to increase active student engagement in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL).          

We are excited to announce the following 6 projects, please click the links to learn more about each project - 

Catherine Halliwell and Cath Brown - How are students using extensions and what is the impact on success? 

Catherine Halliwell and Jenny Duckworth - Can an asynchronous student conference in Open Studio develop students’ critical evaluation skills? 

Barbara Jones - Online module forums: espoused, actual and improved 

Alan Yate - Do OU students understand the Learning Outcomes on courses in general and in T176, T192, T193, T194 in particular?
