We have been running the inaugural Edit event today. Students and staff are working together to generate ideas and improve the student experience. Here’s a brief look at what we’ve been doing so far.
We began by identifying problems that affect the student experience. We were lucky to be joined by Hil Gibbs who shared some techniques for identifying ideas.
- Be like a child.
- Banish fears, uncertainties and doubts.
- Think about other worlds.
- Random pictures.
Reframe problems in to challenges.
Look at other worlds.
What other contexts inspire ideas for engaging assessment in HE? Thinking about @TfL, @London2012, @edfringe, @innocent, @google. #editLN

Stakeholders and user stories
Two ideas will continue to be developed tomorrow:
- Students reviewing individual lectures/sessions to help staff to develop their teaching and improve student learning.
- Rooftop garden. Looking at the underutilised spaces at the University to develop exciting and stimulating social and learning spaces.
