MEQ’s (Module Evaluation Questionnaires)
Kingston university, Kingston School of Art, Illustration Animation BA(Hons), Level 5, Module 5001 Process and Purpose. This Module focused on approaches to drawing and technology.
Module Impact from taking over design and delivery of Module 5001 in 2018/19 and continued development and quality assurance trough 2019/20. These results also evidences highest achieving outcomes through comparative scores, two years running (2018/19 & 2019/20) across Department, Faculty and University. This shows the module working at the highest levels in organisation, delivery, student engagement, student experience, student outcomes, studio and online based learning and equality of opportunity.
Here are the results for years 2018/19 and 2019/20. A marked improvement can be seen across the module in 18/19 and that improvement can be seen to continue in the 19/20 outcomes.
It is also demonstrable that across these two years that the module, through MEQ feedback, achieved the highest outcomes across all 10 categories when (in 2018/19) compared across Department (+.55), Faculty (+.50) and University (+.51). The highest outcomes being 4.74 and the lowest 4.06:
…And also the highest outcomes across all 10 categories in 2019/20 when compared across Department (+.46), Faculty (+.53) and University (+.56). The highest outcomes being 4.87 (+.13 on 18/19 module outcomes) and the lowest 4.11 (+.05 on 18/19 module outcomes) in 2019/20. The results in the year 2019/20 were achieved under higher student numbers and tighter budget constraints.
Module 4.53 (+.04 on previous year)
Department 4.07 (+.07 on previous year)
faculty 4.00 9 (+.01 on previous year)
University 3.97 (-.01 on previous year)
These higher achieving outcomes in 2019/20 were facilitated by responding to the student feedback and external examiner observations. The module was made elective in response to student feed back relating to section 7 ‘There are opportunities for me to participate in learning activities throughout the module’. The use and integration of high end graphics software in relation to film, game and VR development, from hardware and software specs through to session design and delivery, were instigated by myself during the 2018/19 year. this went on to be recognised by the external examiners: ‘…exciting developments integrating new and rigorous approaches to developing students’ use of drawing as the foundation of their research whilst developing the potential of new technologies alongside more traditional skills.’ and ‘…astute initiatives to extend the exploration of drawing in experimental directions, particularly by engaging with new technologies such as VR.’
These processes toward traditional processes and methodologies were developed further and carried forward into the Module design, the results of which can clearly be seen in the aforementioned MEQ’s and also developed into workshops involving industry and cultural exchange workshops with the Drawing Room Collaboration and the 2020 Vienna workshop. these projects included video projection, Gallery visits, gallery showings, VR specialisation studios, connections with post degree courses and research/development methodologies.
