FLIE will be running two sessions in January specifically for academic staff in FMC, in response to Faculty requests. You can find details of the two sessions below with links to book yourself on via our Eventbrite page.
Monday 17 January 13:00-14:30
FMC benefits from a rich level of expertise and experience in project and dissertation supervision and the purpose of this workshop is to share the current good practice and discuss ways staff can enhance their supervisory practices to further enrich their student learning through project and dissertation units. The workshop is designed to provide a platform for supervisors to discuss any challenges in project and dissertation supervision and consider possible solutions at faculty and discipline level as appropriate.
Monday 24 January 12:00-13:00
Brightspace’s Awards tool enables instructors to award online badges or certificates to students based on criteria they set within the unit. They don’t contribute to grades but can be used to award other achievements, such as completing formative quizzes or contributing to discussion posts. Research shows that students like them, and that they can improve engagement and motivation. Join this session to find out how you can use awards on your unit.
