Experiences of Teaching, Learning and Assessment of Student Research Skills on a Level 9 Taught Programme in Engineering
O'Dwyer, Aidan
This contribution reports on the teaching, learning and assessment of a Research Methods module on a Level 9 taught programme in engineering at DIT. The module was run in the 2008-9 and 2009-10 academic years. The module is a generic one, whose aim is to facilitate students in developing a comprehensive proposal for their engineering research project. A team approach was taken to module instruction. Students were assessed (at different stages during the module) by evaluation of a written research proposal planner document, a reflective PowerPoint presentation and a final written research project proposal. The contribution reflects on the module experience, including the lessons learned and the proposed further development of the module.
