Literature Review

Workpackage one is a literature review of previous JISC funded projects.  Mary and I are working out how we will tackle this work, using the template provided by Lawrie Phipps.

We have decided that we will start by going to the JISC publications page and then browsing by type i.e. reports.  Then we shall narrow our search by selecting a topic relevant to our issue, so we shall start by looking at ‘learner experience’ , ‘admissions’ ‘communities’ ‘learning enviroments’ but we shall also be searching across the reports under the theme of student retention, student experience, first year experience and user generated content.

We plan to keep a summary of the reports which we will then condense into the final template.

We discussed whether we cover methodology and decided against this unless it impacted upon lessons learnt.

That’s all for now!
