Sally Hickson and Polly Turner gave some useful tips on encouraging deep learning through constructive alignment of the curriculum and formative feedback opportunities. They emphasised the notion that there should be no short cuts through the curriculum and students should go through the whole journey.

Discussions following the session highlighted some good practice across the Faculty, including the use of My Learning Essentials as some freely available teaching activities to encourage students to synthesise and analyse their work as well as the use of Pebblepad for an electronic reflective portfolio (contact the Faculty eLearning team to find out more about Pebblepad).
