Abstract

The Linked project actively promoted student engagement by involving students across disciplines and students from ‘other’ year groups in peer interaction via dynamic, motivating, meaningful and fun workshops. It was evident that students were keen to participate in and engage with peer and interdisciplinary groups to develop their learning but required a formalized environment for this to take place. The project used peer interaction to engage students in, “…the whole of the experience of being a student.” (Anderson and Boud, 1996) The Linked project aimed to develop student engagement and learning via experimental drawing activities (traditional and digital).The project provided activities, experiences and forums for discussion that connected students to their peers. The project aimed to enhance the ‘whole student experience’.
