  • Multiple geographical locations
  • Online communication: a vital enterprise skill. Many organisations work with clients, colleagues and contacts all around the world - students will too!

why interdisciplinarity
Whyinterdisciplinarity?
  • Outside comfort zone
  • Working in a mixed group requires strength and confidence in one’s own discipline – what can you bring to the table?
  • Brings new perspectives to work done in student’s core subject discipline
  • Meet new people and make new friends
  • Transferrable skills
  • In the ‘real world’, you never work only with those of the same background as you – good preparation for working life, whether employed or self-employed
  • Different fields have different working cultures – a chance to learn from others
assessment
Assessment
  • Individual portfolio (50% weighting):
    • Compilation of weekly blog journal
    • Reflective report
    • Summary skills statement
  • Group business plan (30% weighting)
  • Group poster presentation (20% weighting)

www.sheffield.ac.uk/enterprise

peer assessment
Peer assessment
  • Group work is anonymously peer assessed based solely on an individual’s contribution relative to their group.
  • Each group member scores each other group member between -3 and 3 with a net total score of 0 across the group

www.sheffield.ac.uk/enterprise

peer assessment1
Peer assessment

For example:

Joe Bloggs scores his group as follows

  • Jane Doe 2
  • John Smith 0
  • Sarah Brown 1
  • Robert Jones -3

So in a group where all members contribute equally, all members would score 0.

peer assessment2
Peer assessment

+3 =mark substantially higher (a whole degree class

+2 = mark significantly higher (around a half a degree class)

+1 = mark a few points higher

0 = mark equal to the overall group mark

-1 = mark a few percentage points lower

-2 =a mark significantly lower (around a half a degree class)

-3 = a mark substantially lower (at least a whole degree class)

www.sheffield.ac.uk/enterprise

in groups
In groups:
  • What are the barriers or enablers for you to deliver (support delivery of) ‘learning’ content online?
  • What is the value of online delivery?
  • What are the considerations you would need to make to run a social project and engage external people?
  • Would this be a right choice for you?
  • How could you implement peer assessment in your practice or the practice you support?
