Chartered ABS 2018/19 Scholarship recipients
We are proud to announce the recipients of the 2018/19 Chartered ABS Scholarships. These Chartered ABS Scholars have proposed research projects which will directly support the aims of the Chartered ABS, its membership, and business schools across the country.
The three successful projects were chosen from a pool of applications, and will receive funding and the opportunity to be published across Chartered ABS channels. The projects will focus on: methods of embedding diversity into learning, teaching, and curriculum development; crafting a framework for improving the student experience; and using cutting-edge digital teaching methods to improve class participation.
We congratulate these successful applicants and look forward to seeing the projects develop.

- What functionality would teaching staff like to see included in a DOMP (or a digital classroom response) tool?
- How do teaching staff experience the use of the DOMP (e.g. is it easy to use, does it result in any clear benefits, does it help them understand their current student population)?
- If they have used both traditional paper-based OMP and DOMP formats, what rationale have they got for using either or in various circumstances, and how have the experiences differed?
