Day 6

What’s happening in FBS? 

Assessment Guidance

Staff in FBS have been working to increase student confidence and understanding of their assessments by creating assessment guidance videos, for which further school-based training will be taking place in the New Year. This has been extended by some to course and module introduction videos, with the aim of fostering a greater sense of a learning community for students in the online environment. 

Blackboard Collaborate

There has also been a focus on developing Blackboard Collaborate as a key faculty tool, particularly in HASS, as staff continue to explore both the flexibility and accessibility of their teaching and learning. 

Exploring VR

An informal Business School VR group has been exploring the potential applications of VR for developing students as confident public speakers.
