As posted previously, the Barony Campus Certificate in Forestry students had successfully carried out their ‘stunning’ team-based Learning Outcome 1 (LO1) Tree Identification Sway presentations within the Digital Classroom. So stunning, teaching staff at Barony Campus have been asking how they can also access Microsoft’s Sway in order to potentially create teaching and learning resources for their students.
With last academic year’s Certificate in Forestry students individual LO1 assessment, it was found that 90% of the students did not pass the assessment first time. This year’s students, it was found that 50% had passed LO1 first time round. Evident that the new online Tree Identification Unit within Moodle and the students collaborating with their LO1 presentations has improved the teaching, learning and assessment for LO1.
