ALT South #TechThursdays – Directed study, ChatGPT led independent study and Exam revision
Join the ALT South #TechThurdays event with Dr. Manish Malik and Dr. Jebraeel Gholinezhad from the University of Portsmouth to learn about an inclusive innovation, Examopedia – the collaborative exam revision service that has helped academics improve teaching and support ALL students since 2007. With closed book exams returning back after the pandemic, students are in need of extra practice and support to succeed. Examopedia provides the perfect solution, offering an innovative approach to exam preparation that has already been successfully used in one engineering school before the pandemic. It can also support staff and students where open book exams are continuing to be used. By tapping into the cultural and social capital through the use of ChatGPT, Examopedia promotes independent study, improving students’ confidence and overall academic performance for ALL students regardless of their academic background.
Whether you’re ready to start your career in teaching or just curious, the Department for Education (DfE) wants to answer your questions at their ‘Get into teaching’ events.

Educating for Sustainability: Innovative engineering curriculum empowering students to develop sustainable solutions that drive the circular economy
Siemens sees enormous concern for sustainable development amongst youth all over the world, but little direction or support dedicated to empowering them to solve the world’s challenges. This may be contributing to a sense of hopelessness which is, in turn, leading to diminishing enrollment and attrition in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) programs at the tertiary level.
Siemens drives sustainable innovation by seamlessly combining the real and the digital worlds as digitalization is the key enabler of the circular economy. As a core tenant of its DEGREE framework, Siemens will enable the technical education of their customers’ future employees and peers to address global sustainability challenges.
