Notes from Supervisory meeting 15.09.17
|Problem with Skype.
Unfortunately, your voices were not recorded but these are the notes as I remember, prompted by my answers.
Fix Skype on my computer or find alternative.
We discussed what data I have and what I might need. The data comes from different students (between English and Communications) but they are all 1st yr students; just different cohorts. I noted it is easy for me to get more data from English, but not from Communications.
I have a course outline and marking matrix for the English subject and course outlines for some of the Communication subjects.
We discussed the logging of what information I can about the data. I said I have done this on a spreadsheet.
I don’t know the ages of these students and the Dean will not permit me to ask student admin for any information.
See if I can collect the English essays for students who’s Communications essays I have.
Look for other supporting documents: What is available to teachers/Students.
Write up some background notes about this and the marking processes.
Use this spreadsheet to make a more meaningful code for each item I have collected, as presently they are just numbered.
|Establishing “expert models”
Discussed how complicated this is: influences of Arabic/English/Indian
English models in the textbook are for western universities.
|Check consent wording to check if I can show the other teachers and ask what they like/dislike about certain essays.|
|Follow up references on ethnographic research.
Write up stuff about the influence of Arabic/Islam on student’s writing. NB consider if/how this influences markers.
|Beginning analysis||Start a first analysis using Theme just to see if this seems like it will be useful. Look at Macro & Hyper themes for eg|
Susan away 22nd – 29th.
This time slot of a Friday seems a good time for all.
|I will do some work on these points and e-mail it when ready.|
