Here is an example of an assessed presentation I worked on with a partner for my fourth MA module, the final one before handing in my Critical Study:
Working on this took a lot more effort than I feel it should have taken. It also brought some issues to the surface that I think need to be dealt with:
- how distance students access library resources, including how they are made aware of plagiarism and referencing rules
- how and if distance students access (in-sessional) language and academic writing support
- how collaboration is introduced and facilitated in distance learning modules
These can be some of the things I will explore in the future, possibly as part of my scholarship portfolio at work.
