What the students say: innovation and digital literaciesThe different teaching style was a breath of fresh air.Loved that it was all online! Best thing being able to interact with other students online.Brilliant to have a module that involved focussing on our digital profiles.Creating blogs was something I had not done before!

What the students say about: engagement and authenticityAll material online which made the module novel, fun and interesting. It keeps engagement high!I definitely liked how Twitter became a key tool for this module and helped with engagement amongst students.Wish it could be longer. I do not really want it to end.Extremely relevant to the modern day graduate. I consider this module to be the most helpful so far in my degree, it has taught me skills I can genuinely put to use in the real-world.

I wish all my subjects were this good at feedback.

Teaching challengesThe Scaling Issue

We need your help please!Is there a role for PEER ASSESSMENT?

Peer assessment considerations:How will it be received by diverse students?Clear conflict resolution systems.Comprehensive and easy-to-use marking criteria.

Peer assessment benefits:Part of the learning process.Enhances the collaborative learning cycle.Enhances engagement, learner-centredness and self-direction.
