student expectations of postgrad study and resulting challenges for educators

Back in April, I spoke on a panel of educators at the Postgraduate Student Experience Symposium. I talked about our degree, our students, our students’ expectations of the course, and the challenges my colleagues and I are facing as teachers in a multimodal (online and on campus) Masters degree.

The video of my presentation is now available and embedded below.

There were some great presentations on the day, including a keynote from Professor James Arvanitakis. All the presentation recordings are available on the Symposium website.

In my presentation, I spoke about some of the early findings from a project I’m working on with colleagues, called Refining the blend: developing a student¬†centred framework for multimode education.¬†I’d like to acknowledge those colleagues here. The project team is comprised of myself, Professor Helen Partridge, and Dr Elham Sayyad Abdi. We’re supported by a great team of research assistants, namely Katya Henry, Lynn McAllister, Clare Thorpe and Jen Thomas. More about the project.
