The use of Avatar generated/supported learning has made an impact on teaching within the area of criminal justice and media studies.
The following represents comments from some of our final year students.
'I have used them in both International Perspectives and Victimology as well as Media and crime last year, I have found them invaluable. Some of my mates on other courses have said they wouldn’t mind something like that with the level of content and such, as when they have missed a lecture due to illness it would be good to be able to find out still what was talked about'.
‘I think they're useful and show just how much effort she puts into our learning. They help make her lectures different and engaging’ .
‘I think they are really good and provide extra understanding and context to the lecture, I particularly liked the avatar exercise that we did on offender profiling with rape victims, it was very useful and a very engaging activity’ .
