Delivering, Assessing and Providing Feedback for Fieldwork Modules: A Case Study from Archaeology
Keywords:Archaeology, education, fieldwork, assessment, feedback
In this paper we highlight some of the issues surrounding the delivery of fieldwork modules, using archaeological excavation as an example. There are a whole range of issues surrounding the assessment of fieldwork-based modules, and here we detail approaches we have adopted to ensure consistent delivery and assessment methods. In particular, we have written and launched a web resource which can be used to assist with both the delivery and assessment of fieldwork. Finally, we discuss issues surrounding feedback, and suggest a method for enhancing students’ feedback on field-based modules.
