Student voices in e-learning and teaching changes

sparqs has been working with City of Glasgow College and its students’ association to find out what students think about e-assessment and e-learning at the college and how it can be improved. City of Glasgow Student Engagement Team has run five ‘You’re the Expert’ sessions with course reps to find out their views. These focus groups have come back with some really interesting perceptions about e-assessment, e-learning and their uses currently at City of Glasgow.

This work is part of a wider project, where sparqs is working with other colleges about how they can use their course rep structures to engage students in e-learning conversations. The project aims to produce some guidance or toolkit by Summer 2014. It will include case studies, and we hope it will be useful for other colleges making changes to their e-assessment and e-learning facilities to consider the student voice in the colleges’ decisions.

E-assessment and e-learning are a particular interest in the college sector just now, and this project is feeding into some of the work that SQA, Jisc, College Development Network, and Education Scotland are embarking on at the moment.
