Assessment for learning in research methods
Assessment for Learning In Research Methods Undergraduate Research

  • To be addressed:

  • Traditional assessment

  • New ways of assessing: New media opportunities

  • Maintaining systematic and critical ground rules necessary for academic rigour

  • To be presented:

  • A range of examples from classroom practice, use of technology for collaboration and assessment, practices of students using computers in a multimodal environment


Pilot research
Pilot research Undergraduate Research

  • Setting: Teachingresearch methods module to Level 4 Undergraduates. [Degree and Higher National students]

  • Rationale: Experimentation with different delivery, collaboration and assessment methods

  • Questions:

  • How can Web 2.0 and emerging technologies used in everyday literacy practices be acknowledged and built on in the Higher Education Curriculum?

  • Does the employment of new and emerging technologies impact in a positive way?


Web 2 0 practices and emerging technologies
Web 2.0 practices and Emerging Technologies Undergraduate Research

  • Twitter

  • Blogs

  • Wikis

  • Videocast

  • Web 2.0 practices permit a number of people to read, write and alter the content both at the same time and separately over time.

  • Web space enables an environment for collaboration with an audience

How to assess
How to assess Undergraduate Research

  • Traditional Assessment methods do not account for the many different modes

    • Not recognising the full nature of multimodal communication used in social media may impact on assessment techniques

  • Communication can be assessed through different modes (Jewitt, 2009)

  • What is a mode?

    • A mode can be defined as a socially shaped semiotic resource used for making meaning for example image, writing, speech, layout, colour and space (Kress, 2010).


Multimodal framework
Multimodal Framework Undergraduate Research

  • Creation of Multimodal Transcripts ( Baldry and Thibault (2006): Multimodal Analysis:

  • Provides tools for analysing and describing the resources used by students. Multimodal frameworks can add justification to using new media opportunities for assessment


Multimodal transcript

Phenomenological study
Phenomenological Study Undergraduate Research

  • Situated

  • Hermeneutic

  • Ideas of ‘Practices’

  • Preliminary findings: Is there a need to embrace and include these technologies in the curriculum
