Digi Know – Turnitin Rubric Examples

Example TII RubricFollowing on from Greg’s post about Rubrics in Turnitin, I thought it would be useful to share a teaching resources page from the Turnitin website, which showcases a variety of rubrics. These rubrics can be downloaded, customised and used in your own assessments.

Digi Know: You can see what student’s see

A tip that a few people have found useful recently is using Edit Mode in Course Resources to check what students can see in modules. This has come in handy when academics have been told by students they can’t see some content.

Simply by turning Edit Mode off, you’ll be able to have a student eye view of a module area. Here’s the difference it makes to the module menu:

JISC Student Digital Experience Tracker

We would like to understand how students view their ‘digital experience’ at the University, so we are asking students to take part in a short survey. The JISC Student Digital Experience Tracker survey was launched via Student Experience on the 1st December. The survey is being promoted to students until the 15th December. Please could you encourage students to complete the survey, so we can get a fair reflection of the student digital experience.

Forced Marriage Video Resource

The TEL Media team recently worked with the College of Education and the charity Karma Nirvana to produce a video about Forced Marriage. The video informs and educates about the issues raised and give awareness to the signs to spot in young people who might become a victim of this crime.

Forced Marriages where one or both parties is married without their consent and are illegal in the UK but still pose a massive threat to thousands of individuals. This video talks to survivors of both forced marriages and honour-based abuse; a violent crime committed to defend the honour of the family/community, South Wales protection unit and Jasvinder Sanghera the CEO of Karma Nirvana.

Karma Nirvana is holding their second annual Day of Memory on the 14th July 2016 to honour the memory of those whose lives were tragically taken in abuse related to honour and/or forced marriages. #weremember
