This case study describes the use of pod casts to support and enhance student decision making in the development and running of a new simulated company using business simulation software
Learning space evaluation
The subject of physical learning space has in recent years become increasingly complex This reflection examines what evidence exists in this area
An evaluation of Simventure
This paper discusses the value of providing a simulated experience of how organisations work enabling skills and knowledge from disparate subject areas to be synthesised and assimilated in solving complex business problem
Evaluation of 'Advanced Database Management' module
This paper focuses on a discussion on the approach taken in analysing evaluation design for a specific faculty module on enterprise education
The reasons for attrition
This paper focuses on a) to reflect on an approach, decisions and subsequent knowledge with regard to non response and b) to discuss the "attrition survey", rather than discussing the actual results of an overall longitudinal study. This should be linked to the paper "student experiences of enterprise education"

Student experiences of enterprise education
This report outlines data collected from students across a broad range of subject areas across all Faculties of Leeds Met University. This data was generated in response to a questionnaire designed to obtain information on students experiences of enterprise education
Academic research on student engagement - lost formulae to inspiring students
This paper shows academic tutors take on a multitude of roles in their current positions at university and while teaching is expected, from most, it is often assumed that the tutor will apply appropriate pedagogical tools to convey knowledge to the students. This view is now being challenged as many students are being actively encouraged to voice their views of the teaching and learning experience this paper shows
