Internationalisation and Promoting Assessment Diversity (IPAD) Study
The IPAD project aims to promote student engagement by teaching a cohort of undergraduates peer mentoring techniques and academic writing strategies. Participants will be given Ipads for the fifteen months of the project, and invited to experiment with ways of using these tools to support each other as scholars.
Half the participants will be international students, and data will be collected on possible forms of peer-led support for students who are relatively unfamiliar with the culture and conventions of British academia.
The IPAD project is led by Dr. Mary Deane (on maternity leave) and Dr. George Roberts of the Oxford Centre for Staff and Learning Development (OCSLD). It is supported by the Centre for International Curriculum Inquiry and Networking (CICIN), and funded by the Higher Education Academy (HEA).
