2012 Enhancing student engagement and employability: experiments with Web 2.0 technologies


Evidence from an evaluation of student perspectives on work-related learning with South Yorkshire Police has demonstrated that the quality of the work-related learning experience is dependent upon strong support structures to manage the complexities that arise in the world of professional work and potentially come into conflict with the demands of the academic environment. In response to this, virtual support has been embedded into a work-related learning module via the use of blogs/journals to aid both academic and professional development yet challenges persist in the effective engagement of students within this process. This presentation will outline the provisional findings of a project designed to generate a better understanding of how and why students engage/disengage with different types of 2.0 technologies at SHU.
