Design for Delivery

Working together with students, we organised co-curricular activities to enhance professional competencies and equip our students with the skills to stand out in the job market upon graduation. In the process we also built a strong sense of community.   What did you do, why did you do it? Multiple co-curricular activities (those that run parallel…
Kahoot and other quizzing software are powerful tools for assessment as they provide instant feedback, gameification, and the MCQ (multiple choice questions) and free typing questions can be modified to assess higher-order skills, as well as knowledge recall. In addition, the anonymity of these tools can allow evaluation of your teaching intervention. What did you…
In this article I reflect on my experience of co-creating marking criteria for summative group presentations with Year 0 students in a fully online [20/21] and flipped [21/22] learning environment. The process has been refined over these two academic years giving increasing control for the student. Students developed the matrix and then practiced their application…
In this article, I suggest supporting students through a variety of digital technologies to help achieve the main learning outcome of the module: application of key enterprise processes to the development of a new enterprise proposal.  To achieve this learning outcome, students were asked to generate a business idea that they could develop into a new enterprise proposal for…
Due to Covid19 we have all used many more online, self-paced, learning materials over the past year. How do we ensure that the materials we use are relevant, accessible, and add value for students, and are not simply an overload of YouTube videos and similar materials?  The Rapid Review Tool gives a framework for academics to conduct rapid…
This article suggests a method for improving student engagement and criticality through generating paired peer feedback in breakout rooms.  What did you do? Why did you do it?    This activity made use of Flipgrid, a video recording software which is an office 365 app and available as an optional tab on Teams.  Prior to the live…
I lead a large (130+ students) module which involves students working in groups of 4-5 in an online business simulation. One component of the assessment is a 30% individual reflection on the process (not outcomes) of working in a group.  This resource describes the approach to structuring the reflection and how it was assessed.  What…
Enabling our students to creatively showcase their digital skills is a key part of the University’s strategic drive to promote digital education as outlined in the Digital Literacy Framework. Flexible assessments, co-creation of educational resources, and the adoption of digital CVs provide opportunities for students to extend their digital skills in preparation for the real world.   What did you do? Why did you do it? I have always been interested in collating case studies from across the University in which the student…
