Project Proposal writing workshop - 27th January
In preparation for staff submitting proposals for funding, this workshop is for staff to help build a robust partnership proposal. There will be an introduction at the start of the session but staff are invited to attend at any time on a drop-in basis with either their ideas or draft proposals for feedback. The aim is that participants are better equipped to propose successful projects that adopt a robust and effective student partnership approach.
Date: Wednesday 27th January, 2-3PM
If you would like to join this workshop please send an email to the StudentShapers account and you will be added to the attendance list. You will then receive an invitation and link to the Teams Meeting closer to the date.
End of Summer StudentShapers Symposium - 21st October 2020 *Microsoft Stream link included*
Summer Project symposium: 21st October 2020
Date: 21st October
Location: online via Microsoft Teams
Following the summer vacation, and the peak of StudentShapers projects taking place the symposium will showcase a proportion of these projects to demonstrate the impactful outcomes across the College that can be achieved by adopting an authentic partnership approach across staff-student communities. The event will demonstrate some of the exciting developments across the college and provide attendees with ideas and insights for anyone considering working more closely with student partners in the next year, or developing a StudentShapers project.
We will have three themed sessions:
(Contributors for each presentation listed in alphabetical order, *denotes students)
- The impact of partnership
Department of Aeronautics (Lien Chong*, Maha Khamlichi*, Errikos Levis, Amy Picton, Silvestre Pinho, Maria Ribera Vicent, Hayley Wong*,)
The Aeronautics department has largely transitioned to paperless teaching, with all students being issued tablets since 2018. This has opened up new options for the delivery of interactive and audio-visual content, alongside traditional written content. StudentShapers projects have created a range of resources which form part of a comprehensive e-learning approach and that are already being used for teaching and virtual labs. In addition, the processes for creating this original material have been recorded and constitute a solid foundation for further development across the MEng programme. Alongside this, StudentShapers have been engaged to improve wellbeing and community support while working remotely. Student led workshops and resources were developed from a student perspective and a survey gathered feedback and engaged the broader student community on remote working and settling in to ICL. Enhanced resources that all students can access on a Wellbeing and Community are hosted on a MS Teams page.
- Planning for the future: digital students and online learning
The presentation will explore our experiences of conducting educational research project about being a student in the Digital Age. We will explain the project, unpack lessons learnt in the process of partnership as well as present some data we collected and analysed about the role of technology in students' lives.
Timothy Heightman* & Thomas Hurkxens: Augmented simulations: Physics Lab
With a team of talented student developers, our group are creating a platform on which virtual and mixed reality learning experiences can be developed, allowing learners to visualise and interact in 3D in innovative ways and paving a new path for digital solutions in higher education. As a proof of concept, the group created a virtual optics lab capable of modelling high resolution diffraction phenomena. With more content on the way in the Imperial ecosystem and beyond, this medium is one to watch out for!
- The nth dimension of partnership
