Quality Improvement Project

The Quality Improvement Project, is a new college initiative at raising attainment. A small group has been formed of which I am a member, looking into new approaches for teaching and learning. One of my insites of recent times has been the realisation, mainly from Moodle logs, that students do not seem to be engaging beyond college as much as they could. With this in mind one of my principle targets will be to utilise LAMS as a means of presenting graded exercises beyond the class room. Exactly what form the exercises will take and the value of the grading with regard to the standard Pass, Merit, Distinction criteria remains a question in point, as my experience so far with these trials points to the need for a systemic rather than component change in strategy, that covers both the delivery and the assessment, not to mention content; interesting times ahead!
