Supporting dissertation students online

The Educational Technology Team supported two small-scale projects around dissertation support and supervision. We worked with staff to provide advice and guidance on how educational technology can be used to support students undertaking a dissertation. We have drawn on lessons learned from the small-scale projects to develop a resource for staff to who are looking for ways to use educational technology to support students undertaking dissertations.

As a dissertation requires a significant amount of self-directed study this resource provides recommendations on how educational technology can be used to scaffold and support students’ self-directed study and how technology can support the supervision process.

The resource is available from our Guidance site.
