    Abstract

    Changes were made to the teaching method and examination paper for a Level 1 Mechanics module taken by a cohort of physics students with the aim of encouraging deep learning. The co-operative learning approach of Johnson et al (1991) was used to pose conceptual questions for interactive discussion. Quantitative and qualitative methods were used to evaluate the effect of the change on student learning. Analysis of the quantitative data showed that there was no discernible overall development of deep learning. However, analysis of the qualitative data showed that experience of the module by both students and lecturer had been greatly improved by the changes.
