  15. 15. Feedback from Student Participants Examples of Positive Feedback: • ”…enabling unprecedented engagement in one's course…” • “…never have known of the impending challenges higher education has if not for the group…” • “…provides a platform built upon the ethos of truly improving everyone's experience implemented by those within the current education system, not by those who are, in any way, detached from it…” More here: goo.gl/FAmNKs Challenges we face: • Logistical and timetabling concerns • Governance of the group • Support internally for staff and for students • External Reception for Students
  16. 16. The Future • Continue to increase student engagement through innovative methods • Continue to increase student’s Digital Literacy • To build Social Media as a key component of the emerging enterprise angle • Foster connections between Students and Staff, by making both more digitally literate • To reform assessment and feedback practice with student input • To collect more feedback on all elements of the project • To help spread awareness of the power of Co-Designed Learning
  17. 17. Identified benefits • Greater engagement with learning through enhanced autonomy, self- direction, authenticity and learner-centredness. • Deep learning as a result of social learning pedagogies which encourage students to read, comment and reflect on the work of peers; or present their work to peers and at conferences. • Employability benefits in terms of presentation skills, communication skills, project management skills, networking skills.
  18. 18. More benefits… • Enhanced digital literacies in building professional digital networks through effective use of digital affordances and services (blogs, Twitter, LinkedIn) • Enhancing student awareness of the appropriate use of language and style in communications with wider cohorts/groups (both online and offline) • A sense of self as part of a wider world, as a member of international communities, and increased knowledge of career possibilities
