Reflection – what do we do well?
• Q5 – Clarity of Assessment
– e.g. Final Year Project Handbook
– Assessment Schedule
• Q8 – Detailed Feedback
– Matrix marking schemes give descriptive and
quantitative information, supported by written
comments.
• Q18 – Specialist Facilities
– Investment in dedicated computing and laboratory
facilities. Responding to larger numbers of students.
– Support from qualified technical staff.
Reflection – what needs more thought?
• Q3 – Staff are Enthusiastic
– How can we transmit our passion?
• Q9 – Clarity of Feedback
– How can feedback be made clearer and more
useful?
• Q15 – Organisation & Management
– The programmes are complex and contact hours
are high. Sometimes things don’t go to plan. How
can we make things run more smoothly?
Reflection – Future risks?
• Maintaining and Extending Specialist Facilities
– Computing requirements
– A problem recruiting qualified technical staff
– Capacity
– ‘Phase lag’ if responding to emerging requirements
