• Make an origami Hare inspired by one of our new Hare sculptures on campus

“What do you mean??” Supporting Undergraduate Essay Writing
Collaboration Area, Teaching Grid, Floor 3, Main Library

Roxanne_DouglasRoxanne Douglas

This academic year I have been the Academic Writing one-to-one support officer for English and Comparative Literatures. In this session, I aim to use my experience with supporting students with their essay writing and interpreting feedback to help Warwick staff to understand why student essays are not always the easiest to read, and how to give feedback that will make marking easier in the future. This is a session not only aimed at humanities disciplines, as the skills which support essay writing in and out of the classroom will foster critical thinking. We will also discuss the emotional and mental health concerns attached to assignments, especially for students in their first and final undergraduate years and how to support anxious essay writers.

The Group Project as Authentic Assessment: Challenges, Lessons, and Rewards
Collaboration Area, Teaching Grid, Floor 3, Main Library

Lydia Plath Lydia plath

In this session I will share my experience of assessing a 15 CAT History module, “African American History and Culture” via a group project. For their assessment, students were required, in groups, to plan a fictional Black History Month programme at a real US university, including the submission of a formal proposal form with a full budget and a poster. They were also tasked with writing an academic rationale for their proposals. In this session I will reflect on some of the lessons I learned in setting this type of assessment, and we will discuss the many rewards, challenges and possibilities of setting group work as authentic assessment.
