Abstract [en]

Feedback from tutor marked assessments (TMA's) are a major component of the distance student learning experience.  However, a significant proportion of students do not pick up their marked TMA’s and hence miss out on these invaluable insights to inform their ongoing learning.  In 2019, this represented around 10% for all 19J modules across the University – so around 40,000 uncollected scripts which is an enormous amount of work from tutors.  

An eSTEem funded research project (Calvert and Morris, 2020) and limited to statistics modules within STEM, focused on gaining insight into the reasons why students do not take access their feedback and use this in their subsequent learning and assessments.   Common reasons for failure to pick up included forgetfulness, unawareness of availability, fear of reading negative comments and lack of student learning engagement.

During the online session, the technological approaches to monitor assignment pick-up will be demonstrated. Additionally, participants will be encouraged to research details of the pick-up rate on their modules, consider opportunities to implement such technological approaches and encourage timely forward activities with their students.

Abstract [en]

In today’s information focused world, most days involve contact with some form of screen and keyboard for work and leisure purposes. Learners must be dexterous and agile to effectively respond to shifting labour market requirements reflecting fast-changing technological needs and expectations. Information is available in a myriad of forms and successful engagement requires effective and efficient skills and understanding. With this background, this paper asserts that a musical skill set broadens the way that learners subsequently engage with and manage their information acquisition and use. This provides a broader base for ongoing knowledge management. Using philosophical and reflective approaches, it draws on life experiences from arts education by way of a duoethnographic approach. Two narratives provide insights of individual experiences, subsequent acquisition and engagement with information and consequent enhanced knowledge. These are analysed using a personal knowledge management model, providing a visualisation approach to the collaboration through knowledge sharing. The dialogic results demonstrate how the background of musical competence enriched subsequent learning capability in structuring and operationalising knowledge acquisition and management.
