1. A 10-minute video for LEAPS Summer School students outlining what they can expect - in academic terms - over the seven weeks of the programme. Features contributions by tutors from four of the 13 Summer School courses, who outline their expectations of students and describe how teaching and learning on their courses compares with first year of higher education.

  5. As part of our session on Discussion and presentation skills, students were asked to mark a filmed presentation. The second part of the exercise involved comparing student and staff expectations of what represents high quality work. To do this we drew clips from the original presentation film then discussed them in class. This video includes the clips that formed the basis of this discussion.
