This Academic Fellowship aims to lay the ground work for a reliable method of recording and judging student contributions throughout a course as part of their final mark. It does this through inviting students to participate in and comment on a series of discussion forums: first through a trip to the British Museum, second through discussions seminars with visiting scholars and third through a video-conference debate with students at Monash University. Focused around these events, the students will be asked to record their thoughts and comments on a Warwick blog, which will build a database of their securely attributable contributions throughout the academic year.
