The Power of Freedom: Setting up a Multimodal Exhibition with Undergraduate Students to Foster Their Learning and Help Them to Achieve
Abegglen, Sandra; Burns, Tom; Sinfield, Sandra
Journal of Peer Learning, v9 Article 2 p1-9 2016
The present paper explores the opportunities created by an emancipatory approach to learning and teaching when combined with embedded peer mentoring. First year undergraduate students--most from non-traditional backgrounds--were set the task to explore learning spaces at their university and to present their findings in creative ways in a Multimodal Exhibition during Enhancement Week. They were supported by second year students on their course who acted as coaches, role models, and critics. Our experience--and feedback by students--showed that serious learning is taking place when students are given "the freedom to learn."
