Bridging the Gap: augmenting student skills for biological sciences practical classes

The ‘Bridging the Gap’ project, which received a TLIF award in 2014-15, was a student-partnership project to develop materials in Moodle, such as quizzes and videos, that would ease incoming students’ transition into first year biology practicals. The aim was to develop students’ confidence and aid in their preparation and consolidation of the course material. Students were recruited to this project to act as researchers, pedagogical consultants and producers of teaching resources. The students and staff involved have co-authored a paper about the project.
