Student Role During the Sprint

Below are some suggested student roles during the sprint. These may change during the sprint.

Student Sprint Process Day 1

9:30-9:35pm - Warm-up/ Introductions

9:35-10:00 am - Review of Sprint Roles and Agenda

10:00-11:30 am - Student Workshop

Facilitator - Erin Fields, Flexible Learning and Liaison Librarian

For this session, we will:

Resources for the Session

Activities

Using the Resource guide created for your assigned topic, we will work on finding resources, assigning appropriate citation style, applying PURLs (if necessary) and citing them using the wiki-mark-up. You will also work with your faculty partner to identify resources they will need for their case study, and support the case study structure when required.

10:45-11:00 am - Break and Check in with your Faculty Partner

It's time for you to meet with your faculty partner to learn about what wiki support and resources they need to complete their case study. This is also a good time to establish how you and your assigned faculty member will work together.

12:00-1:00 pm - LUNCH

1:00-2:30 pm - Finding Resources and Working in the Wiki Continued

2:30-3:00 pm - Draft Case Study Checkpoint

At this time you will provide feedback for draft of case studies. Good Feedback is:

  • Specific: Specific rather than general information can help the receiver reflect on actual changes (ie." it would be helpful for me to have a photo or image to illustrate X...."
  • Descriptive: Descriptive rather than judgmental. As a learner, are there concepts or approaches that are described in expert language making it hard for you to understand? How might this be changed?
  • Actionable (Constructive): Feedback directed to elements, aspect of the case study that can be changed and how you would change it. (ie. "You might include this concept/aspect as a different heading."
  • Relatable to you: To make you (or your peers) care about this case study, what needs to happen?

Activity

When giving feedback, we will use the Discussion section of the Case Study Template. For example:

  1. Go to the Case Study that you will be providing feedback on. For example: http://wiki.ubc.ca/Documentation:Open_Case_Studies/LFS/Template
  2. On the top right you will see the Discussion tab. Select the Discussion tab and open it in a new window.
  3. Select the Start a New Discussion link and add your comments.


When writing your feedback, you should answer the following questions:

  • What would make the case study that would make it easier for you to understand as a learner?
  • What additional resources that would have made the case study more interesting for you?

Note: Work on a different case study from your neighbour so you do not save over their comments.

Student Sprint Process Day 2

9:30-9:45 am - Reflecting on Day 1 Process

9:45-12:00 pm - Finding Resources and Working on the Wiki Continued

12:00-1:00 pm - LUNCH

1:00-1:30 pm - Case Study Checkpoint

At this time you will provide feedback for draft of case studies. Good Feedback is:

  • Specific: Specific rather than general information can help the receiver reflect on actual changes
  • Descriptive: Descriptive rather than judgmental. As a learner how easy was this case study to understand? What could be added? What could have made it more interesting for you?
  • Changeable (Constructive): Feedback directed to elements, aspect of the case study that can be changed.

Activity

Participants will present their revised case studies (2 minute) and discuss changes they have made, What they still need to do?. What they have learned in the process? You will provide feedback during the presentation. When providing feedback, consider the following questions:

  • Are there areas of the case study that could be clearer for you?
  • What additional resources or questions could be added to the case study to make it clearer for you?

1:30-3:45 pm - Perspective Sharing Activity

For the perspectives activity the faculty case study writers will be writing a section for each case study about the perspectives that they would bring to this case study according to their discipline. As a student you will be working in two groups and proving feedback for each case study from a learners perspective.

Activity

When giving feedback, we will use the Discussion section of the Case Study Template. For example:

  1. Go to the Case Study that you will be providing feedback on. For example: http://wiki.ubc.ca/Documentation:Open_Case_Studies/LFS/Template
  2. On the top right you will see the Discussion tab. Select the Discussion tab and open it in a new window.
  3. Select the Start a New Discussion link and add your comments.
