First year undergraduates: the story so far

How do our first year undergraduates think and engage with learning which is not exam oriented? Many academics feel that undergraduates are uncertain of how to make use of the resources on offer to them and instead prefer content to be delivered in bite-size chunks.

Led by Nick Barker (Department of Chemistry) and Rachel Dickinson (WBS), this session will encourage you to explore undergraduates' educational experiences to date and challenge our understanding of:

  • students' background and expectations
  • their attitude towards learning
  • our role in facilitating their learning

This event will take place between 12-1pm on Friday 7 June 2013 in the Teaching Grid, Library, and aims to explore the myths around our students and enable them to learn better. It has been specifically organised for academic and research staff with teaching responsibilities.

Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided. Please feel free to bring your own lunch.
