Is this course right for me?
Target Audience: Faculty of Science staff
This workshop will explore a technological approach to delivering a class, using a system developed in the CIS department.
The system hosts many aspects of the delivery process, integrating teaching materials with video content and machine-assessed online exercises. It also facilitates assessment tasks which are mediated partly by computer and partly on paper in a way that allows all the marking to be done online.
Feedback is a dialogue, delivered in two phases: generic feedback is delivered immediately, with specimen solutions (often in video form) acting as the cue to a reflection and self-assessment exercise; individual feedback comes later, and is delivered much more efficiently with assistance from the machine and input from the students. The technology has its rough edges but may prompt the imagination, and the approach is broadly reproducible.
Participants will experience all the staff and student roles involved in a class built this way, as we shall develop, attend, examine and assess our own class in the course of the afternoon.
They will be enabled to:
- Design teaching materials with integrated interactive content
- Use rapid feedback from students to inform teaching
- Design assessment tasks which combine computer and paper components, and are efficiently assessable

When applying for a course, you should note that there will be a £50* to your department if you cancel within 5** working days or you do not attend, and a £25 charge for cancellations/ non-attendance between 6 and 10 working days. There will be no charge for cancellation made 10 or more working days before the event. Notifications should be made to OSDU@strath.ac.uk
A department is welcome to send someone else in your place if they wish without incurring a charge, providing that person has the necessary pre-requisites for the course. In the case of courses split over more than one day, you must attend ALL parts of the course. If you fail to attend any part you will be charged as outlined above.
*This is the standard charge for cancellation or non-attendance of course of 1 days duration or less. For some courses there may be a higher cancellation charge and if this is the case you will be advised of this at the time of booking.
**Any bookings made within 10 days of the event will incur the charges as specified.
