Using External Live Projects with Final Year Undergraduates
Greenwood, Tony
Practitioner Research in Higher Education, v1 n1 p25-27 2007
This paper examines a group project module on the final year of an Information Technology degree programme at St. Martin's College, now the University of Cumbria. The paper outlines the nature and purpose of the module and then discusses a research project that has been scrutinising different aspects of the work. It offers some further reflections on how the module is implemented and managed. The paper provides an informal case study of a module that has a clear and explicit employability dimension. It also provides a case study of novice researchers becoming involved in the publication process through reflecting on an aspect of their teaching.
