This pilot project has been underway since the beginning of term.
Please check the link below for the improved although not perfect attendance recording system we are piloting across all level 4 modules, all undergraduate degrees.
Learning Analytics – Attendance-Assessment
Without tutors recording attendance the pilot will not be as successful as it could be.
Tip – if you are finding using the computer in the seminar room not working as well as you would like you can use an iPad – the technicians do have a limited number you can borrow.
If you need some help please contact Marion Curdy M.E.Curdy@brighton.ac.uk or Julie Fowlie email@example.com
Any feedback please direct to Marion and that will inform the next stages.
The new and exciting addition is Student Finder, details on above link or direct to the video – Viewing a student’s My Engagement view Anyone involved in supporting Level 4 students should see the Student Finder Widget on your home page of Studentcentral. This will enable you to look up any level 4 student and see their overall attendance (to be treated with caution as attendance is not complete for all students), engagement with studentcentral and their current assessment marks against their cohort.
If you cannot see the Student Finder widget and you need access please let Marion know.
To follow– As part of the pilot the students in four seminar groups have had access to their own student engagement view and the results of the pilot will be posted very soon.
The NSS will be officially launched at Brighton on Monday 6th February 2017.
This NSS Briefing Note has been prepared for distribution to all staff by the Strategic Planning Office. It contains key information on:
- Response rates
- Promoting the survey and ‘inappropriate influence’
- Your Voice Matters campaign – feeding back the feedback
- New survey questions
- Contacts and sources of useful information
This is particularity important for tutors who teach final year students. Please take the time to read the 2017 questions so you can understand exactly what questions the students will be answering.
One simple way to promote the survey is to add a strap-line to the signature area on emails (see below) as we are often solving problems and answering questions – this reinforces that we are supporting students.
Strap-line on email responses to students – Calling all final year students please complete the National Student Survey (NSS): your contribution is very important http://www.thestudentsurvey.com/
How to create and add a signature to messages
The results of the NSS will be used as part of the metrics of the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF)
Some highlights colleagues might be interested in –
iPad Video Presentation Recording – particularly useful for assessed presentations (allowing the students to see their own video using a link added in gradecentre feedback)
Nearpod version of the Oregon Trail to support research design – This was an innovative way to help students understand how to write a research question and then think through appropriate research methods
