River Wear Bridges

Description

Blind visitors to Sunderland Museum, examining models of the old and new bridge across the river Wear. ?To them, their fingers are eyes? From 1913, John Alfred Charlton Deas, a former curator at Sunderland Museum, organised several handling sessions for the blind, first offering an invitation to the children from the Sunderland Council Blind School, to handle a few of the collections at Sunderland Museum, which was ?eagerly accepted?.

Texting in class

Description

In large student cohorts, it can be intimidating for students to ask questions. We have introduced "text walling" as a means of allowing students to ask questions by mobile phone (a technology familiar to all students). The questions appear on the computer screen so are visible to the whole class. We have also used the text wall to ask questions of the students, who then send their replies to the text wall.

Virtual field trip for distance learning students

Description

The activity is the development of a virtual field trip, created to support distance-learning students undertaking a module in Sustainable Catchment Management as part of the MSc Aquatic Ecosystem Management. Field trips are an integral and highly valued part of all courses in environmental subject areas, but it can be problematic for distance learning students to attend all field courses, particularly if they are of short duration and far from their location. The aim of developing the virtual field trip was to replicate in part the experience of onsite students who visit various locations within a river catchment to study and observe issues relating to water quality management. The virtual field trip allows students to view and interact with information relating to the whole river catchme

Enhancing institutional conversations through Dialogue Sheets 

Description

Dialogue Sheets are a simple but powerful tool which stimulates effective and democratic conversations by structuring discussion, encouraging contributions and recording outcomes. Dialogue Sheet methodology has been developed for change management purposes from the World Café movement (Holtham, C. and Courtney, N. 2006) and were introduced to staff of the university in a workshop - Placing Student Voices at the Heart of Institutional Dialogue - at the SEDA Spring Conference in 2008 (Flint and Oxley 2008) where they were very positively received. Since then, Professional Development have enthusiastically embraced Dialogue Sheets to facilitate and enable professional conversations with staff for different purposes and in a variety of fora including facilitating inter-sectoral debate and eng

From enhanced learning to learner empowerment: the 3E Framework in action on the MSc BOE 

Description

In the move to the new VLE, the recently approved 3E Framework will provide guidance around the active use of technology in modules. The 3E Framework comprises an Enhance-Extend-Empower continuum describing simple uses of technology for enhancing the learning experience through to activities that engage learners in applying knowledge in sophisticated, authentic ways. The 3E Framework is already in use on the MSc Blended and Online Education, which is a fully online programme for educators who want to learn how to harness current and emerging technologies in their teaching. The MSc BOE aims to engage participants from the outset in developing their skill and expertise as online educators, modelling good practice along the way. This is achieved through the embedding of the 3E Framework withi

Engaging All - The Cybercrime Investigator 

Description

Over the past three years a range of engaging material has been created to engage School kids into Computing: The Cybercrime Investigator. It uses a rich and engaging, and ever changing, environment to stimulate the next generation of computing students. Overall it is an immersive environment based on who, why, when and where puzzles, which provides a unique crime scene for every user, and uses techniques such as deep zoom to integrate a wide range of academically challenging puzzles to solve. Overall it integrates a wide range of digital forensics and security techniques, including finding hidden messages, and crack codes (including hashing and encrypted content). It focuses on a cybercrime investigation, using enhanced graphical techniques such as deep zoom-technology, which is used by t

The use of videos as an alternative to lab manuals 

Description

I noticed that a lot of my students have problems with written lab manuals for different reasons. I sent a questionnaire to 30 Forensic Biology students to ascertain what these problems are and to find out if the use of videos as an alternative to lab manuals might be helpful. The majority of students said they would like to watch these videos. I then produced three videos about experiments that are carried out in the module Aspects of Forensic Biology. The students had the opportunity to look at the videos and fill in a second questionnaire with their comments. Most of the students responded very positively and said they would like to see videos for other labs as well. The aim of this study was to find out if the use of videos would support student learning by offering an alternative way

Performance and Student Perception Evaluation of Cloud-based Virtualised Computing Labs

Description

This work focuses on the integration of virtualised environments within the teaching of computer security and digital forensics, and includes three case studies. The first case study involves assessing student perception on the usage of VMware Workstation and AWS (Amazon Web Services) for security and digital forensics labs, while the other two present a performance evaluation of a Cloud-based infrastructure using VMware ESXi. The evaluation for the first case study shows the results of a questionnaire for the integration of VMware Workstation and AWS and highlights that the virtualised environment seems to engage students more than traditional desktop ones, along with identifying the key areas which seem to be useful, such as for network forensics and in running instances within a sand-bo
