Lunchtime Session with Dr Alison Laver Fawcett, Monday 8 May from 12:00-13:00 in SK036

How do we facilitate our students to become passionate about learning, capable of investigating new problems and ideas? In this session we will discuss the Higher of Education Academy (HEA; 2015) ‘Framework for Student engagement through partnership’, Healey, Flint and Harrington’s (2014) ‘Dimensions of framing undergraduate research contexts’ and Spronken-Smith et al’s (2013) ‘Framework for dissemination of undergraduate research and inquiry’. Alison will share how staff have developed the BHSc(Occupational Therapy) level 3 ‘Contributing to the evidence base’ module which has replaced the tradition dissertation module in this programme. The majority of occupational therapy students now choose to engage in Student as Co-Researcher (SCoRe) group projects, some of which are conducted with local community partners or align to staff research interests. Student feedback on the module will also be shared, including impacts on employability and how students have used their experience and outputs as ‘unique selling points’ when applying for jobs.
