Description

This one-year project was funded by the Principal’s Teaching Award Scheme to investigate:

what students want and need from their dissertation experience,
what connections exist between programme and supervisor practices and student outcomes,
how student and supervisor understandings and experiences of ‘success’ map onto available dissertation-related data on four ODL programmes: the LLM (Masters in Law) and MSc in Digital Education in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences; and the MSc in Clinical Education and MSc in Clinical Management of Pain in the College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine.
