Helen Atkinson – Careers Consultant Careers Service What did you do? I used Canvas New Analytics and Quizzes to monitor how students were engaging with non-credit bearing careers initiatives, specifically the following two projects: China Career Gateway: An annual extracurricular career development programme designed to help Chinese students at Newcastle University prepare for their graduate Read more about The Great Wall of student engagement: Using Quizzes and New Analytics to inform community design[…]
Students worked together in this online event to share experiences and develop ideas to advance selected Sustainable Development Goals.
Students from our University took part in a successful online event with students at the Indian Institute of Technology in Delhi (IITD) to share ideas around environmental sustainability.
This collaborative project supported instructor’s adoption of the Transparency in Learning and Teaching (TILT) framework to help structure and communicate their assessments.
Find out if Dr Rachelle Maddison and Dr Raghda Zahran could use Canvas New Analytics to check whether a small cohort of international students could access resources in their own countries.
A successful example of collaborative working, this design sprint approach resulted in some excellent ideas and inspired some new approaches to engaging students.
Over the years the Language Resource Centre has offered a programme of student-led language learning groups during term-time. These groups provide an opportunity for informal speaking practice to all Newcastle University members who are registered with the LRC. With the March 2020 lockdown, the decision was made to continue this activity but to trial taking it online using Microsoft Teams. For the academic year of 2020-21 the programme was run entirely online and was also expanded, in terms of number of hours offered, the types of sessions and languages.
In the past we had a physical tandem board in the Language Resource Centre, where students could come in and pin up a notice to say what languages they spoke and what languages they wanted to practice. With lockdown in March 2020 and no access to the physical centre, within a week we set up the online version of the tandem board to facilitate people being able to do language exchanges entirely remotely wherever they were.
This challenge gave students the opportunity to become familiar with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, work as a team and demonstrate their creativity. Find out how it worked and view some of the fantastic winning entries.
The aim of this project was to produce an online lab health and safety package to support students from Biomedicine, Sports and Nutrition. Academic staff were finding it difficult to monitor student engagement with the module handbook and lab code of conduct and wanted to have a more standardised approach to ensure that all students are aware of and complying with health and safety requirements in the lab.
