For some years, anecdotal evidence implies that students are overloaded with work in certain programmes and courses, which might discourage deep approaches to learning. The project investigated factors influencing the perception of workload. Suggestions for a balanced curriculum to achieve better learning outcomes were developed.
Description of process, outcomes or deliverable
Informal interviews with teachers
Survey sent to all undergraduate students
Learning diaries produced by 14 students from 6 faculties
Dissemination, diffusion and impact
Formal consultations, such as the annual consultation with each undergraduate programme.
Personal contacts with teachers.
Formally included in CLEAR assessment workshops.
Learning Activity website http://www.cuhk.edu.hk/clear/LA has appropriate suggestions.
