Abstract

Recent years have seen large increases in the number of students entering our Honours year and with that a more diverse set of inherent skills. For this reason, coupled with staff and student feedback on previous projects, we have created a series of four project preparation workshops that aimed to educate our students in some of the areas that supervisory staff have highlighted as key for a positive project experience. Here we will summarise the preliminary findings on how effective these sessions have been, as well as highlighting the workshops that have shown the most impact.
