This approach was initially discussed as launching in September 2018, with level 4 students attending a timetabled seminar to help them to think about creating an inclusive classroom environment. Some courses have gone a little towards making this happen but there is further to go for 2019/20.

This was an action research project that focused on improving grades through meaningful feedback. It originated out of a LEAD projects that Amy Musgrove worked on 2017/18. Other staff members were working on similar projects and these fed back to each other in order to assess how the feedback supported improvements in students work. The aim was to see what characteristics of feedback supported students to have a greater increase in their mark between T1 and T2. This is to be researched in three ways:
1: Assess the different characteristics of the feedback given in an early assessment.
2: Categories of feedback developed to be tested further.
3: Analyse the GPA between T1 and T2 to see what patterns are identifiable.
A pilot was conducted and the team are committed to further testing their findings in 2019/20. The pilot found that certain types of feedback enhanced performance of the students.
