computer forensics

In a recent posting about computer forensics the paper presented by Dr Ali Al-Sherbaz was discussed. A recent blog reviewing the workshop provides an interesting overview of the workshop and discuss some of the presentation including Ali's.

"One of the last presentations of the day was by Ali Al-Sherbaz from Northampton University.    Ali directed us to an interesting web page which is entitled, The Evolution of Privacy on Facebook which has a really nice graphic.  (Digital privacy is one of those issues that is addressed on an Open University module called TU100, My Digital Life). Ali also introduced us to a pedagogic tool called Dale's cone of experience." Christopher Douce

The blog also provides an informative summary and reflections on the links between this workshop and others by the Higher Education Academy. It also makes a convincing read on why we should go to these subject based pedagogic workshops.

Feedback on Feedback - Moulton College

Throughout their degree courses, Higher Education (HE) Equine students are assessed in a variety of ways ‐ through assignments, presentations or practical tasks, for example. Traditionally, on completion these are marked by a lecturer, and the grade returned to the student along with annotations on their performance. This feedback can then be used as a basis for improvement of future work. Other types of feedback methods are available too, and it is the effectiveness of all approaches which is appraised in this project.
URB@N stands for 'Undergraduate Research Bursaries at Northampton'. It is a bursary scheme offering opportunities for current undergraduate students to participate in a pedagogic research project taking place at the University of Northampton.
