Björn explained that the School needs a Rep to attend Board of Studies and Teaching Committee Meetings, these are held approximately once a month during semester times. These meetings are open to students and Björn will post the link to where all the
minutes are held, also anyone wishing to attend can do so.
Board of Studies is attended by Teaching Staff and covers things such as course changes, programme proposals and new courses. Teaching Committee covers general things such as policies.
Board of Studies:
INF1-CL has had no recordings available since lecture 9 and it would useful if there was a list of resources and study material available. Björn will take this up with the lecturer.
It was reported that recently some students asked if it could be possible to receive a copy of submitted files attached to the emails we get for coursework submission confirmation. For example, when we receive the emails “Submit Feedback” a file confirmation would be nice just to be sure it’s the right files or versions of them we sent out.
IVR the students reported that they felt the coursework was far to much for this course being a 10 credit course and students are spending double the amount of time on the work that is stated.
It was asked if the code for this course be tested more often, maybe 2 or 3 times a week rather than once a week, this would be to enable the students to get more accurate feedback.
EPL Can a Piazza page be set up?
AILP Urgent: Can it also have Piazza or a Wiki set up?
CCS It was reported that the students aren’t finding one particular tutor very helpful, there are 4 tutorials and only 2 tutors including the lecturer.
CS/MLPR/IRR Feedback was well received.
There will be no PC’s installed in Appleton Tower due to on-going work, although the students are still able to use Level 3 as a study space.
Also if anyone want to organise an social events such as a ceilidh, there are funds available.
The University has a 15 working day policy on coursework being returned although the School try and turn this around in 10 working days.
