Abstract [en]

Didactic research has shown that feedforward has a positive effect on students' experience of their progression in oral presentation. However, studies also show that students often experience a lack of feedback from teachers and audience attending their presentations and consequently they lack an experience of progression.

In this work we present a platform for structured documentation and follow-up of students' progress of skills in oral presentation that has been been implemented within the bachelor programme in nuclear engineering at Uppsala University. The platform provides efficient communication of feedback and feedforward to the students over this one-year programme, involving several courses and teachers.

The platform is implemented within the system for learning and study administration that is used by students and staff at Uppsala University ("Student Portal"). It consists of an interface where the students and teachers have an overview of progress made in all individual courses at the programme. For each course that includes an oral presentation, there is a folder where each student uploads a self assessment. In the same folder, the teachers upload their feedback as well as the feedback provided by fellow students for each oral presentation. Self assessments and feedback provide feedforward for future oral presentations. The platform was implemented in August 2014, and it has now been in use for one year within the nuclear engineering programme. Lessons learned from using the platform are presented in this work.

In order to study the effects of implementing this platform, a questionnaire was distributed to the students for the purpose of collecting information regarding their experience of giving oral presentation, their perceived skill level and their experience of practising oral presentations. The same questionnaire was distributed to the students on three occasions: before, during and after the first year of using the platform. Results from analysis of data are presented, showing that the students have experienced progression during this year.
