  • Overview of presentation:

    • Project Background:

      • Pedagogical context, initial data and aims.

    • e-Gothicist.

  • Key Themes:

    • TEL has an important role to play in facilitating effective peer feedback and student mentoring.

    • Web-based educational resources can help to develop academic communities that draw upon informal learning opportunities to foster mutual responsibility at the heart of the learning process.

    • The successful development of students as partners in the teaching and learning process is grounded upon a sense of ownership.

  • Project Background:

  • Research and teaching context – Gothic as a research and teaching strength within the English Department at Edge Hill University.

  • Approximately 250 students each year across levels 4, 5, 6 and 7 undertake taught modules with a Gothic/ supernatural flavour.

  • Pedagogical context:

  • Gothic identified as a literary form that invokes ‘threshold concepts’ that are ‘transformative’ (Wisker 2007).

  • As Hoeveler and Heller note in Teaching Gothic Fiction, more needs to be done to share good practice in the teaching of Gothic texts/modules.

  • Initial Data:

  • 67% of students surveyed thought that the VLE is an integral part of the teaching and learning experience for all of their modules.

  • 25% of students surveyed thought that the VLE is an integral part of the teaching and learning experience for some of their modules.

  • 67%of students surveyed thought that the VLE was used to improved their subject knowledge.

  • 58% of students surveyed thought that more training in the use of the VLE would improve the quality of their engagement.

  • 33% of students surveyed thought that the VLE is an excellent interactive resource that enhances their learning experience and is integral to their studies.

  • Aims:

  • To enrich the experience of students studying Gothic modules by utilising technology to promote partnership and flexibility in the mode/pace/place of delivery in order to enhance their performance.

  • To develop and share models of good practice for teaching Gothic Studies in order to improve teaching quality.

  • To advance pedagogic research into Gothic and e-learning in order to contribute to knowledge and understanding in this area.

    • A more integrated approach.
