Undergraduate students engaging in small groups: see how academics have made research skills explicit

See how academics have made the development of the skills associated with research explicit to students. The link is to a new resource that captures student experience of research in small groups.


Especially note the comprehensive work in Engineering (access via ‘examples’). Mechanical Engineering tutors ‘reingineered’ the RSD for Engineering contexts, producing the OPS (Optimising Problem Solving) pentagon. Use of OPS throughout second semester 2014 is featured, with explanations of OPS and lots of student engagement with the pentagon.
