Dr Raghda Zahran, Programme and Project Manager from the Project Management Office worked with colleagues from the School of Computing to engage postgraduate students taking an Innovation Project, offering students a unique opportunity to apply their Data Science skills meaningfully, alongside developing an understanding of Learning Analytics from Newcastle University students’ perspectives, to inform the development of practical tools and strategies.
This collaborative project supported instructor’s adoption of the Transparency in Learning and Teaching (TILT) framework to help structure and communicate their assessments.
The School of Computing have been running sessions with employers from industry to give students the opportunity to see the connection between what they are learning now and their future working environments.
Moving teaching online called for a radical rethink and Dr Ahmed Kharrufa shares his approach to getting the most out of synchronous and non-synchronous delivery. Some nice examples of using Teams, Quizzes and ways of gathering informal and formal feedback from students.
This interdisciplinary approach to a flipped classroom gets students creating, engaged and sharing knowledge using short videos.
