  • Arena Exchange A Connected Curriculum for HE: the case for a Showcase Portfolio

    With Prof Dilly Fung, UCL Arena Centre. Is it time for the higher education sector globally to take a more 'joined up' approach to it's mission? Can institutions make much richer connections between research, student education and public engagement? Drawing on the classic Humboldtian notion of the unity of research and teaching, this Exchange introduces the Connected Curriculum initiative (Fung 2017), which sets out to develop better synergies between research, education, public engagement and contribution to the world. Within this context, I present in this session the case for introducing a curated, Showcase Portfolio to taught degree programmes, both undergraduate and postgraduate. A programme-wide Showcase Portfolio, which includes work produced by students that is directed to specific 'real world' audiences, challenges students to: review their work, as they select and perhaps edit for presentation; revisit and learn from feedback on their work, including feedback from peers and external audiences/partners; develop a holistic, analytic picture of the ground covered on the programme, including insights gained through active research and enquiry; develop a stronger sense of the disciplines(s) and themes studies and the ways in which they relate to one another; articulate explicitly the perspectives and skills underpinning the range of work presented.

  • Arena Exchange: How can we bring students and researchers together

    for mutual benefit. This seminar will discuss the 'Dragons' Den' assignment for undergraduates. The students are paired with research-intensive academics - they learn about their research and then create a business plan and open-ended portfolio of pathways to translation. Assessment includes presenting to a panel of external Dragons, with a prize of (chocolate) money! This UCL assignment is translatable to many disciplines, and has recently been taken up by Swinburne University of Technology as part of their new BSc in Engineering Practice. We will discuss ways to engage students with development of transferable skills and business and translation knowledge through active learning, how to provide support for this, and ways to engage our researchers in this process to create an authentic environment.

Professor Alastair McClelland and Jo Strange will give illustrations from the 2015-16 BSc Psychology programme ASER report and present a collection of good practice arising from various UG and PGT ASERs in the division of Psychology & Language Sciences. This will be followed by a question and answer session

  • CALT Arena Exchange Developing Students' Research Skills using Wikis

    We will discuss introducing wikis as a part of required coursework in two undergraduate economics modules. The wiki project had three main objectives: it gave students an opportunity to do a literature survey or other research, it required them to write analytical prose and it facilitated group work. Since our modules tend to be large in number and our student body quite diverse, students often dont get a chance to write extensively, research or collaborate. The wiki project was a way of getting around this. We will describe the way we set up the wiki activity and present data on student engagement and evaluation of the project

  • UCL ARENA Peer to Peer feedback of written work in a small group setting

    With Dr Brent Carnell When students have structured opportunities to offer feedback to their peers, and to get feedback in return, their learning is enhanced and they become more engaged and motivated. Along with covering some of the important benefits and even challenges of engaging students through peer to peer feedback, in this exchange session Dr Brent Carnell unpacks what happened when he implemented the mode of learning on a small writing module in the Bartlett School of Architecture. Participants will be encouraged to share how this might work in their own context.

  • UCL ARENA: Understanding and using the Connected Curriculum Guide

    This introductory workshop will enable you to use the Connected Curriculum (CC) Guide effectively. You'll explore the levels of development in the CC Guide (beginning,developed and outstanding), and equip yourself to assess how far the CC dimensions arre embedded in your learning design. You'll look at the online resources which support CC benchmarking and prepare to use the CC Guide to develop research-based education in your context. The CC Guide can be found on pages 6-7 in the UCL Connected Curriculum :Enhancing programmes of study.

  • UCL Arena A Research-Based Undergraduate Programme in Natural Sciences

    The seminar will describe the initiation and implementation of a degree programme in interdisciplinary science taught entirely through research-based learning. We draw on our experience of the Natural Sciences programmes (BSc and MSci) at Leicester and the experience of our "sister" ISci programme at McMaster University. We shall describe how the Leicester programme is run, how the programme embeds the development of a research-led curriculum, how the programme is scaffolded, and the qualitative data on outcomes from alumni interviews. We shall highlight the use of dedicated teaching staff, the interaction with research academics, the flexibility of a student-centred curriculum, and the embedding of professional skill.

  • UCL Arena Assessment and Feedback Mythbusting event

    Marker realibility is the theme of the third assessment and feedback mythbusting event. Are you involved in marking student assessments? Do you have questions about UCL marking regulations? Would you like to discuss ways of making marking more realiable? Would you like to share your experiences and get advice from our expert panel? Following successful assessment and feedback mythbusting events last year, our third mythbusting event focuses on marker realiability. Come along and ask your assessment and feedback questions, or share your expertise.
