Staff Student Rep Meeting – Wednesday 27th February 2019

In attendance: Kendal Reid ITO, Katey Lee Student Support Officer, Jennifer Oxley Computing Support Officer,

Apologies: Stuart Anderson Director of Teaching, Neil Heatley Head of ISS

There is still on-going issues with INF1-CG not being beginner friendly with programming in Python, as some students haven’t done programming previously.  The second coursework is due today and the language of the tasks were not clear.

PWA tutorials are not being covered in the lectures, the Rep has emailed the lecturer asking if this could be addressed and if he could use a tablet in the lectures rather than writing on the board, but there has been no response.

The tutorial sheets for CS are being released on a Friday PM, could they be released earlier?  The lecturer has been emailed with no response.
SDP did not have access to the procurement list, this has now been resolved but one team in particular felt very aggrieved and they are hoping for compensation, due to technical issues and delays because of how the University’s ordering policy works.

ILP there is a discrepancy between the marks that the students received on EUCLID and their pdf’s for coursework 2.  It also stated that the bonus features would not be marked but they were and for the J Unit testing. The android app submission if it crashed or didn’t compile you got 0 marks.  There was no feedback and comments received.  Pavlos is meant to be looking into this and hopefully get back to the class before Friday.

Some students haven’t had any feedback from their Supervisor’s for 6 weeks.

The project allocations have now been released and the majority of students got their first project choice, so that was well received.

It has been reported that males are using the female toilets in the staircase on the 9th floor, there are gender neutral toilets within the main area of Level 9.
