LIT3053 : Project Module

Convener(s): Dr Brendan Stone & Dr Tom Rutter


Please note: This module may or may not run in any individual session. Please check with the course Convenor.

General Information

This module provides students with the opportunity to work closely with a member or members of academic staff on a discrete project with a public engagement focus. These activities could encompass existing work, or could be specifically created with students in mind. Students will be able to gain an insight into and be co-producers of staff's research/public engagement activities, while deploying and developing academic knowledge outside the academy. The module is designed to provide a flexible template to enable staff to embed their public engagement activities within the curriculum.


Seminars and workshops


Students will be assessed using learning portfolios. These will be in the form of electronic portfolios incorporating reflections on the following: meetings and other relevant activities; reading; planning; learning encounters; ideas for work. Content in the journals can be presented through a variety of means (film, audio, notes, writing, images etc). Students will also be encouraged to use their learning portfolios to build a 'research scrapbook', in which a variety of relevant sources are collected and referenced. The learning portfolio will also incorporate a brief summative report.
