Student interaction, academic anxiety and belonging: video project
Keywords:academic anxiety, participation, interaction belonging, chinese postgraduate students
This resource showcase session will demonstrate the output from a research project which was presented at ALDinHE conference online last year. The research looked at the experience of Chinese postgraduate students in three areas: student participation, academic anxiety and belonging. The session will briefly outline our project and how we worked with the students to produce the videos.
The project used a strengths-based approach (Rapp, Saleebey and Sullivan, 2005) whereby students shared their own strengths and resources to create a successful outcome. The only input from staff was to book rooms and source equipment. The students met and worked on the videos themselves, making editorial decisions and doing all the production. At the end of the summer, three videos were produced which focused on the three research themes.
During the session I will play the videos and get feedback from participants on how to work collaboratively with students and on the use of the videos with international students to support their transition into UK HE.
