Measuring The Extent Of Online Placement Resources To Support Computing Students

As part of a wider research project looking into Computing placements and employability, Nzinga Deenah and I conducted an investigation looking at the availability of resources online to support placement students across the sector.

The argument was that by advertising these resources online, Higher Education Institutions were helping to promote and market their courses and the opportunities that they provide to their students.

The slides can be accessed in my SlideShare account (Thomas Lancaster on SlideShare), but I’ve also embedded them here for ease of reference.

One observation we did make is that many placement resources end up being private. It would be good to see increased sharing and reuse across the sector and that is something which we can all work towards.
