The OU centre for STEM pedagogy
The project seeks to increase interaction among students on M269 Algorithms, data structures and computability 1 and develop skills in communicating and evaluating technical concepts with peers.
Within the School of Computing and Communications (C&C), recent updates to the curriculum have highlighted issues around 'skills gaps' within the school and the impact this is having on tutor recruitment.
M815 Project Management is part of the postgraduate computing programme and can also be studied by MSc students in Technology Management, Environmental Management, Engineering, Systems Thinking in Practice or Space Science and Open MSc/MA. This proposed scholarship project is motivated by tutors
In a significant proportion of engineering disasters where engineers were to blame ‘insufficient knowledge’ was a contributing factor, this is an ethical issue.
Developing employability skills have been identified as an Open University priority; there is evidence that these transferable ‘soft’ skills are often limited in science graduates entering the workplace.
This project will investigate whether our current C&C curriculum meets the personal and professional aspirations and employability needs of our students and identify curriculum-gaps from our students’ perspectives.
This free Badged Open Course (BOC) titled Scholarship of Teaching and Learning in STEM provides a toolkit for conducting Scholarship of Teaching an
In 2016, the OU was restructured into four super-faculties (STEM, WELS, FASS & FBL). Amongst many other things, each faculty was tasked with developing structures, governance and procedures that would support module teams in designing teaching and learning appropriate to their context.
The aim of the project is to analyse a trial run of some carefully selected quantum mechanics visualisation tools within the 19J presentation of SM358, and to use the analysis to inform the development of the level 3 physics curriculum.
SXPS288 is the main experimental module at level 2 on the physical sciences pathways. The module was substantially rewritten for the 2019J presentation with updated astronomy and physics projects and a completely new planetary science project based around analysis of planetary atmospheres. Thro
