Assessing students innovatively via peer-reviewed small group video presentations

Dr Jessica Komes assessed students through a pre-recorded oral group presentation. As well as assessing the student’s ability to orally articulate the intended knowledge and skill outcomes, this approach helped students engage with each other and provided an opportunity for peer feedback.

Engineering Poster Competition

One of the high points for our Stage 3 students is the annual poster competition normally held in a large venue with all students and supervisors simultaneously. This is something I could not do this year due to the pandemic restrictions. I used Miro to set up a poster exhibition for around 80 posters which is simply accessible via a URL.

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.
