Presentations to engage students with assessment

"One of the things that the students seemed to be expressing most concern about was the presentation component which they all have to do … so I set about developing some materials for the students … and I drew upon some experience that I had in a former career when I worked in advertising."

Aim 1: Talented, Active, Engaged Students

To increase levels of student engagement with their academic studies

What students say:

  • ʺThe lecturer was thoroughly organised and set high expectations for the group - this provided motivation to work hard and try to succeed at this module. The module content was diverse. All students were encouraged to bond and work together - this resulted in a greater number of students contributing in class discussions and encouraged more interactive learningʺ
  • ʺThe atmosphere in the classroom was great as everyone got involved and participated. It was very relaxed but at the same time very intellectually stimulating. I loved it!ʺ


Student presentations

"The presentations had become the high spot of the module and students really looked forward to attending because people were really putting a lot of thought into how to present in engaging ways."
