Theory and Practice in Chemical Systems
This program shows how a theoretical understanding of the driving force for chemical systems can lead to further development of new technologies and to the discovery of new phenomena, in practice. In teaching, this is done through the creation of a close relationship between the science and mathematics of chemical processes, through problem-solving activities. These acti

Work Experience for Employability: Preparing for Work Experience
Work experience is any time spent with an employer increasing your skills and knowledge. This could be a year long placement or internship where you might complete a specific project and work in a variety of departments or a period of a few weeks where you can sample the sector/industry that you are interested in. Some students use the Christmas and Easter vacations for work experience placements or you might spend one day 'shadowing' someone at work. But work experience can still usefully be ga

Sounds Good - Audio Feedback
online resources from the JISC funded Sounds Good project. Can digital audio be used to give students quicker, better feedback on their work? That was the central question for the ‘Sounds Good’ project. We were based at Leeds Metropolitan University and operated between January 2008 and February 2009. Originally intended as a six-month pilot project, funded by the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC), we started with a team of about 15 teachers in a range of disciplines exploring the u
Learning and study styles - group work
This document outlines a sample session for groups of year 1 undergraduates. The session asks students to think about how they learn and identifies their learning style. It also asks the group to analyse how well it has been working. It is therefore a useful session early on in a PBL curriculum, or a curriculum which uses extensive group learning. A useful addition to the session is a short video clip of current students talking about their own experiences, and also some sample MCQ questions for
Core Physics PBL – Otherton Airport: Crosswinds are Critical.
‘Otherton Airport’ is a first year Group Research project to be undertaken by small groups of (approximately 4) students, working as teams to perform a variety of experiments to address the problem posed to them. The basic theory required for the project can be found in the course book (Physics for Scientists and Engineers, Tipler), although it may be necessary to research some additional theory. The task set in the accompanying project brief is designed to test your ability to work as a t
Core Physics PBL – An Insurance Scam?
‘An Insurance Scam’ is a first year PBL project to be undertaken by small groups of (approximately 4) students, working as teams to perform a variety of experiments to answer a set of questions posed to them. Each group will work in a couple of pairs, each pair performing some experiments and then sharing their findings with the other. The theory required for this PBL is written in the course book (Physics for Scientists and Engineers, Tipler), although some rational thinking may be required
Core Physics PBL – Sugar Capacity.
‘Sugar Capacity’ is a first year PBL project to be undertaken by small groups of (approximately 4) students, working as teams to perform a variety of experiments to answer a set of questions posed to them. The theory required for this PBL is written in the course books (Physics for Scientists and Engineers, Tipler and Mathematical Physics Vol2) although some rational thinking may be required to extend this knowledge or apply it to an area not yet understood by students. Students will have f
