BILT Educational Enhancement Fund (EEF)
1 August 2017
Chris Kent and Jess Fielding have been awarded a BILT Educational Enhancement Fund (EEF) for a Teaching Innovation Grant.
This grant will help develop and plan a revision of the way in which we teach our research methods and statistics undergraduate courses. We are looking to work with the students to develop a course that helps build confident, engaged researchers through active partnership and problem based learning. Over the next academic year, via peer review sessions, action working groups, Science Café’s, and formal unit evaluation, we will work with students to identify areas of the course that they find most challenging and work with them to better design assessments to enable them to overcome these challenges. After evaluation, we will use the evidence-base and materials produced to redesign our teaching of introductory psychological experiments and statistics.
