Dr Peter Stordy and Dr Andrew Cox of the Information School have been awarded funding from the University of Sheffield’s Faculty of Social Science for a project which aims to generate new sustainable ways in which the Information School Student-Staff Committee members can bring about a better student experience.
This project began in February 2014 and is based upon Appreciative Inquiry (AI). AI is a strengths-based approach to change and aims to look towards the future and make changes and improvements based upon positive experiences and strengths.
To date, the project team of staff and students has explored the learning experiences which students have found to be positive and memorable during their time in the Information School. These in turn have been used to help shape and inform student wishes for the future which will help to change and improve the student experience.
