The article reveals the ways of creating more engaging and effective learning materials for your students. In other words, it focuses on the nearest future of education industry - the gamification of eLearning.Since childhood, most of us are used to setting games and studying as far apart as possible in our minds. Studying is usually perceived as an impossibly boring task that simply cannot be engaging or entertaining. This idea is further crystallized by outdated school and college courses and educators many of whom feel that enjoying your studies is something almost criminal. If it isn’t boring, it isn’t serious enough.However, this viewpoint is gradually getting challenged, primarily with the concept of gamification, i. e, the introduction of game elements (challenges, competition, leaderboards, awards to name but a few simpler ones) into the learning process. This approach ensures high levels of involvement, participation, and interaction; information perception rates are reported to increase by 9%. And we shouldn’t even mention that education that is fun, in addition to being useful, is much more attractive.

What can early career researchers gain from External Examiner training?

Article | August 17, 2020

In early May 2020, Advance HE sent out a call for academics to participate in 'external examiner training' which is certificated as continued professional development. For me, it was astounding that within forty-five minutes of sending the initial call for participants the workshop sessions had all been filled, and a second email was issued advising that interested participants were now being wait-listed. This surge of interest was intriguing as it seemed to either suggest that academics in HE were quite eager for CPD opportunities, or that any training regarding the process and diligences of 'external examining' had much to be desired. I considered myself fortunate to make the cut and found the five-units of training spread over four-weeks of participation to be informative, though not quite what I had initially expected.
