PULSE - Pop-Up Learning Space Experiment
A MSD Teaching Excellence Award has allowed us to purchase a set of 35 Windows tablets (with keyboards) to pilot mobile assessment & learning spaces
These allow us to set up a mobile IT suite in any space with a University network socket, or to add capacity to an existing space.
We’re piloting a number of activities:
- Online assessment – to relieve pressure on existing spaces, permit assessments on the hospital sites
- Polling/audience response – in seminars, practical classes and to augment students’ own devices in lecture theatres
- Virtual microscopy - demonstrators will be able to show points of interest to small groups of students on virtual microscope slides
- Objective Structured Clinical Examinations – recording and marking examinations
We are keen to hear from you if would like to take part in any of these pilot activities or have ideas of your own.
