Rosalind Beaumont, Senior Lecturer in School X discusses how Newcastle PGR students had the opportunity to come together via a cross-faculty series of events during COP26 in November 2021, to explore and discuss their research through the lens of sustainable development. This allowed students to develop a wide range of skills, collaborate across disciplines and reflect on their experiences and learning.
This collaborative project supported instructor’s adoption of the Transparency in Learning and Teaching (TILT) framework to help structure and communicate their assessments.
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.

Professional engineers use physical logbooks to document and record their work, from thoughts, design ideas, calculations and sketches, through to literature readings and lab results. For ENG1002, Sustainable Design Creativity and Professionalism, we created an electronic version of this logbook using a Microsoft OneNote Class Notebook.
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.
