ITL Fellowship project reports 2020/21

We're delighted to share the outputs and reflections of our inaugural ITL Fellows, and hope that you will enjoy reading their reports and considering how they might help you to develop your practice. 

Since completing their projects, our Fellows have become Honorary ITL Fellows and they continue to play an important part in our wider team, embedding the outputs and insight from their Fellowship work and using their expertise and knowledge to support teaching and learning across our University of Manchester community and beyondSome have taken on new roles in teaching and learning leadership, such as University Academic and Theme Leads in Student Success, Academic Development, Sustainability Teaching and Learning and Digital Skills and Literacy, or in leading key strands of work in strategic projects which support teaching excellence such as Transforming Teaching Together @ Manchester.   

Other Fellowship projects have evolved and been extended to align with strategic programmes, which brings opportunities for wider impactSteve Pettifer's project aims to improve the way in which information about course units is presented, using intended learning outcomes to highlight the why, when and how of assessment and feedback, and making the structure and content more accessible, meaningful and maintainableTwo student partners lead the engagement with the wider student body through surveys and interviews to determine attitudes to our current systems and approaches, and to evaluate and recommend changes to a new systemDeveloped during this Fellowship from an existing idea through to a working proof-of-concept, the system provides a user-friendly interface to capture and display course-unit information, treating learning outcomes as digital objects that can be referenced within assessments and activitiesThe system has since been adopted by the University's Flexible Learning Programme and will be used to explore how a move in the direction of online, blended and flexible teaching and learning impacts the way in which course units are managed and representedWe look forward to sharing outputs from this project and how you can use these in your practice.
