Undergraduate Programme and Module Handbook 2023-2024
During a lecture session, students will be given a quiz on the Arctic topics covered during the previous lectures and associated readings, and answers will be discussed in class. Results will serve to increase students’ awareness of gaps in their knowledge which can direct their efforts to improve performance on the summative components.
Staff will also schedule one-on-one meetings on the fieldtrip when students can receive verbal feedback on their essay plans.
Additionally, peer feedback during the debate portion of the presentation day– as one team rebuts the arguments made by another – will foster learning that can lead to improvement on summative policy memos.
Further peer feedback takes place in the follow-up workshops and will further assist students in preparing their summative policy memos. Formal feedback on summative declarations and preparations will also serve as formative feedback for the final, policy memo, assessment
■ Attendance at all activities marked with this symbol will be monitored.
