Abstract

The project set out to “evaluate students’ understanding of visualisation techniques and the usefulness of different teaching approaches to help students understand the complex issues involved in visual representation.”

In summary, this report covers the first two of the following three aims:

1 – to evaluate students’ understanding of visualisation techniques
2 – to evaluate the usefulness of different teaching approaches
3 – to assess the construction of assessment criteria for the visualisation assignment

To achieve the objectives, Peanut were commissioned to evaluate “the delivery of a visualisation assignment on a second year undergraduate module about globalisation”, using participatory techniques and approaches.
