    New Project Underway!

    Under the acronym FFIL, ‘Feed-forward for Informed Learning,’ the new JISC project has begun. Our aim is to help students with the ongoing problem of how best to utilise feedback and its importance with regards to improving their academic studies through the use of learning objects and accompanied by a newly designed Wiki website.

    On Tuesday 26th June 2012, the first dissemination event was held, when the FFIL project was presented to the University of West London at the 2012 Teaching and Learning Conference. The reaction was very encouraging and we were met with a reception of nodding heads with particular interest from the Chair of our session; Megan Lawton, University of Wolverhampton.

    This marked the first collaboration of our group, as we all came together to present the individual areas we are managing. There was a clear sense of enthusiasm amongst the UWL staff during our presentation, especially due to the unique concept of a project designed for undergraduates and run entirely by students. Certain familiar faces of IT staff and supervising tutors reinforced how pleased we are to be working within the security of the University, whilst having the freedom to work in a way which suits us and reflects the student perspective. We are looking forward to meeting future users and developers of the learner objects, (online tools) produced using the ‘GLOmaker’ tool at further dissemination events, as well as sharing our Online Help Gateway with others.

    If you are interested in more information about the project or future events, please get in touch with us: joanne.driscoll@ex.uwl.ac.uk.

    We hope to be in touch with you soon for more updates on our project.
