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
AFFIRM Assessment and Formative Feedback In Research Methods - literature review
‘AFFIRM’ is part of Leeds Met’s efforts to promote research-informed teaching. A pilot project, it is concerned with computer-assisted assessment (CAA) related to the teaching of research methods. Over a 12-month period in 2007-8 it will create, test and evaluate a small computerised bank of quality-checked items to support undergraduate and taught postgraduate-level research methods teaching. Although the items are likely to have several potential uses, i.e. to be ‘reusable learning obj
