Event Details

Talk teaching and eat cake

  • Does use of Wikipedia correlate with student achievement?
  • Should training in advanced literature searching be embedded in all curricula?
  • Should maths and science students have more opportunities to engage with current debates in the disciplines?

We will be discussing these sorts of ideas at the next Conversation with Cake:

Wednesday 14 November at 12.15 in 3S 1.08

in combination with this paper:

Information-seeking behaviour and academic success in higher education: Which search strategies matter for grade differences among university students and how does this relevance differ by field of study?

Weber, H., Becker, D. & Hillmert, S. High Educ (2018). https://doi.org/10.1007/s10734-018-0296-4

Conversation with cake is a meeting for those who wish to network across departments and discuss issues in higher education whilst eating cake. We welcome academics, teaching fellows and others who teach with a particular interest in the topic.

No expertise in education literature is expected, but we encourage people to at least read some of the paper before they come. We also expect attendees to contribute to the discussion from their experience. This is a small mutual support and development group, not a workshop where things are taught.

Tea and coffee, as well as cake, are provided but please bring your own mug. Bringing your own lunch is also encouraged.

All meetings last for about an hour.
