The OU centre for STEM pedagogy
We propose the development of OELAssist, a comprehensive system designed to revolutionise the student experience within the Open Engineering Lab (OEL) by addressing challenges faced by students during experiments.
Generative AI tools can produce compelling text, even to University assessment questions. Our research has demonstrated that this poses a risk to the OU, as current versions of ChatGPT can produce material sufficient to pass undergraduate modules.
Didactic games can be a valuable tool that, when coupled with traditional lectures, allows the student to become immersed in the subject, creating a kinetic and energetic environment that will not only help to learn but spark interest in mathematics.
With many students opting to defer part way through a presentation and fewer attending live tutorials in Adobe Connect (AC), this project proposes to pilot the introduction of a series of four short (20-30 minute) tutorials using the Mozilla Hubs Virtual Reality (VR) platform on S296, Cell and Mo
In 2017/2018 the research team completed an eSTEeM project that used a social informatics approach to explore the extent to which, and how, two learning analytics tools (OUA and SPM) were being used in STEM by tutors and presentation module teams.
Improving access to STEM education is viewed globally as a route to economic empowerment.
The Modern Containerised Learning Interface and Delivery Infrastructure project developed and deployed a modern online learning environment and the required delivery infrastructure.
Highly Commended at the 4th eSTEeM Scholarship Projects of the Year Awards 2021 under the category - Enhancing the Student Experience.
This scholarship work took place to identify what Open University (OU) approved technologies (Adobe Connect and Microsoft Office 365 applications) are being used by Associate Lecturers (ALs) and explore how and why they are being used for teaching and learning.
Highly Commended at the 6th eSTEeM Scholarship Projects of the Year Awards 2023.
