People and Planet 2014

P&P is a spring course this year and staffing changes have meant that I’ve taken on more responsibility.

Lecturing, Practicals and Coursework setting

  • Seven lectures (~half the unit’s taught hours).
  • A practical exercise making a time line from 8 million years ago to present day.
  • Conception and setting of a new coursework assignment, answering of student questions (via discussion board) and moderation of the assignment.

Unofficial student feedback

via anonymous post-it notes in a mid-term lecture.

“Really enjoy your lectures! Thanks!” “Good explanations of concepts that I would find difficult to understand. Thanks!” “COOL COURSE. Very interesting.” “This is one of the most interesting topics I’ve studied during my degree – really enjoying it!” “seems like a lot of info to take in – but interesting!” “Friendly feel to the lectures :)”
