(S)peaking in the classroom: Analysing the effectiveness of speaking and teamwork as graduate outcomes from an undergraduate student perspective to reduce anxiety-related attrition

Dr Kirsty Duncanson (Department of Social Inquiry), Dr Hannah Schurholz (Hallmark Program), Dr Sara James (Department of Social Inquiry)

This project investigates students' experiences of speaking and teamwork assessments. On the basis of our findings we will design curriculum that supports students to develop their speaking and teamwork skills more effectively.

The intention is to build student confidence and capacity in order to meet the University's Graduate Capabilities and be work ready on Graduation. We are particularly interested in helping students overcome issues of anxiety which have prevented them from participating in these assessment previously, and stopped them from meeting key Graduate Capabilities.
