|Title:||30 Recent Research Outputs - - Enhancing Small Group Teaching in Plant Sciences: A Research and Development Project in Higher Education (BERA 2006: CMI in Plant Sciences)|
|Abstract:||Paper Presented at the Annual Conference of the British Education Research Association, University of Warwick, 6-9th September 2006. Abstract: The Department of Plant Sciences at the University of Cambridge uses a range of learning and teaching environments including lectures, practical laboratories and small group tutorials. Under the auspices of the Cambridge-MIT Institute's Pedagogy Programme, a two-year research and development project concerned with the development of small-group teaching is being undertaken. The research element of this project endeavours to illuminate current practice and identify areas in which evidence-based development might take place. The development element will include professional development activities and the production of curriculum resources including appropriate online material. This is a multi-method study including a series of student questionnaires; focus groups of students; semi-structured interviews with staff members; and the collection of video of small group teaching. In this paper we report selected findings from the 'student data' of the first year of this project.|
