Abstract

With class sizes in British higher education now approaching what is common in mass education systems, the range of abilities and background in a class are becoming more varied. If we care about quality but cannot increase resources then we have no option but to change educational methods (as Jenkins and Davy (2002) argue). This paper discusses changes made in a computing module that were aimed to ensure effective and efficient teaching.
