The research, to be published in the Journal of Knowledge Engineering highlights the increase in student motivation and engagement where theme songs have been introduced to a course during induction and reinforced at the beginning and end of every lecture, seminar and workshop throughout the term.

All courses will be invited to work with lyricists during April to brainstorm ideas for their songs followed by recording sessions at Abbey Road over the summer.
