Mixed cohorts module, including those from socio-economic deprived backgrounds

AC21010 (Data Visualisation) is a module that teaches mixed cohorts, including those from different Schools, and those from socio-economic deprived backgrounds who are attending the university as part of a co-curriculum agreement with Dundee and Angus College; an agreement initiated by Prof David Coates. One success of the module was the bonding between the different groups through an end-of-module exhibition. An award of £1000 would allow the exhibition to continue for at least 3 years.

This Case Study won the University’s Inclusive Practice Award in 2014.

A process for capturing lectures to enhance inclusion

Lecture content was produced in a range of accessible formats which were designed to promote independent learning, allowing students to learn at their own pace and to adapt the learning materials to their own preferences. This enabled students and academics, to utilise the actual face-2-face lecture time for a more in-depth analysis.

This case-study won the University’s Honorary Graduates’ Award for Inclusive Practice 2012.
