Learning Through Objective Question Activities

The set of resources in this collection comprise item banks for the creation of objective question learning activities. Each resource contains items from different Year 1 undergraduate modules, including a study skills unit. The file formats are compatible with Moodle and can be imported directly into the relevant application for deployment there. Items can be selected at will to make up different types of learning activities (e.g., summative assessment, guided study, progress orientation, seminar preparation, exam revision, etc.) according to individual needs. The team at Winchester continue to develop further item banks in a range of subject areas and would be interested in partnering with institutions who would like to participate.

Collaborative Online Assignments for Final Year Module on Literature

This is an alternative untested methodological proposal for a Literature Module that was taught for several years at the University of Leeds following the traditional lecture-seminar-essay methodology. This alternative methodology embeds very prominently team work, organisational skills, public communication skills and learners' initiative and leadership, whilst reinforcing classic academic skills such as critical thinking by making content more attractive as a result of the various ways in which social engagement occurs. There are almost no limitations to the successful introduction of any kind of e-learning tools such as discussion boards, wikis and podcasts in any literature module that follows socio-constructive approaches. Thanks to my colleague Dr David Frier, who used to teach the module "Innovation and Experimentation in Portuguese 20th Century Literature", for his help. For information and reflections on this methodology, please see A. Martínez-Arboleda, "Using new technologies on content modules in modern languages", Liaison, Issue 3, 2009, págs. 29-31. http://www.llas.ac.uk/news/newsletter.html
