Business School STEF Project
In 2010, The Business School proposed a Senior
Teaching Enhancement Fellow, Nikki Swift, with responsibility for
enhancing and embedding e-learning across the Business School, with
a focus on e-marking and feedback.
The Business School recognised that the
University’s adoption of e-submission presented a substantial
challenge, as they work to engage staff across the subject areas to
adopt e-marking practices as standard as well as e-submission for
text based assignments.
Through working closely with the IT and
Technology Enhanced Learning Departments, Nikki was tasked with
leading the Business School (with the Deputy Dean and other senior
learning, teaching and assessment professionals) in organising
research and quality enhancement work in these areas.
Initial findings from Phase 1 brought out the
- Participants accepted that
e-submission and marking was inevitable
- Participants expressed
concern over the extended time involved
- Portability was highlighted
as a key benefit
- The use of dual monitors was
seen as beneficial for all staff.
As an outcome of Phase 1, The Business School
has now implemented dual monitors for all staff.
Phase 2 is currently underway and should be
complete by the end of academic year 2012.
