Abstract: Student engagement and retention are issues that many of us are currently trying to address. Making learning challenging and more inspirational for students is perhaps one way of addressing this. Introduced here, is a novel and innovative method of reporting undergraduate project work through the process of digital video production. The authors provide qualitative and quantitative evidence from two UK institutions that students from several disciplines undertaking a wide variety of project work become better motivated to learn both the subject matter and essential transferable skills. The paper also reports on a Royal Academy of Engineering sponsored project which is now underway to create an easily accessible „toolkit‟ resource that addresses the issues faced by a new adopter based on the experience of the project team and feedback from participating staff and students.
Description: This is a conference paper. It was presented at the 1st World Engineering Education Flash Week (WEE2011), September 27-30, 2011, Lisbon, Portugal, part of the 2011 SEFI annual conference.
