Using a storyline to increase engagement in a course review

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter in a published conference proceeding

Abstract

We present an approach to the end of course review session that increases student participation and helps them to identify how the topics that have been covered fit into a broader context. We provide examples of this approach being used for visual computing courses, including the refinements made based on the experience of running them. The approach uses a single strong narrative to connect a series of problems that allow students to apply what they have learnt and, in the process, realise how much they now know and how it fits together. It also serves to remind them what it was that initially attracted them to the topic. We also introduce an element of false jeopardy by pitting groups against each other in a friendly way that further increases the students' engagement in the session.
