The quality of the student experience influences student identity, depth and quality of students' learning and satisfaction with their chosen academic discipline. In the symposium, there will be two themed sessions:
- Student participation in fieldwork: challenges and benefits
Field work is an essential aspect of biology and learning in the field is invaluable to the student experience. Nevertheless, not all students can or want to participate in field work so we will present ways to overcome issues with motivation and inclusivity for taking part in field activities. Some less recognised benefits of student involvement in field work will also be developed.
Enhancing the student experience through innovative practice
Finding new and innovative ways of enhancing the learning experience of our students is a challenge. This session will present tool kits, ideas and practices that have been shown to increase the engagement of students in the taught material and the teaching environment. Presentations will cover the technical to the physical passing through the performance.
We will then conclude with a workshop exploring the challenges students face in “Transitions in higher education”. The journey through higher education involves several transitions, the most obvious being from school or work to university, between years of study and from university to further study or employment. This workshop will discuss the challenges associated with these transitions and also the transitions that many students also experience between institutions and courses of study.
Abstract submission is open for oral and poster presentations and the symposium will be of interest to anyone who is actively involved in teaching at any level.
