Standards in teaching and learning • Academic journals, books and databases deliver primary research that underpins theory across a whole host of topics. Standards help students put this theory into context. • Standards information complements the research literature enabling students to develop a better knowledge of the practical implications of research. • With BSOL, you can help prepare your students for life beyond university. • By offering access to standards and helping faculty embed them as part of the curriculum, you will ensure that your students are better prepared for the demands of the corporate world. • At the same time, if graduating students are consistently perceived as having an ability to apply knowledge and identify, formulate and solve problems, this in turn enhances the institution’s reputation in the corporate sector.
  6. 6. Copyright © 2013 BSI. All rights reserved. Standards in teaching and learning (cont.) Practical examples •Civil Engineering – a group of students are tasked with designing a basic bridge as part of their course. Using BSOL, they can explore different options to solve design problems in an innovative yet practical way. For example, they can trace historical approaches to bridge construction by reviewing early standards that specify the use of steel; they can see how the evolution of man-made materials such as concrete, asphalt and composites have enhanced modern bridge design and they can explore wiring regulations for information on lighting and electrical requirements.
  7. 7. Copyright © 2013 BSI. All rights reserved. Standards in teaching and learning (cont.)
