EPCoS was a £250,000 project funded in Phase One (1996) of the HEFCE Fund for the Development of Teaching and Learning. This site is primarily historical and only sporadically updated.
|A short essay which introduces the second half of the book and describes how (and why) we developed "bundles"|
|The collection of bundles we devised. (You can also download a "field edition" of the second half of the book in one pdf file).|
|If you want to contribute your own bundles to this collection, please let me know.|
"The research method to be adopted comes from the FDTL-funded EPCOS project where each site annually donates at least one area of expertise that is then adopted by others. These areas of expertise are then translated directly into activities. By the porting of excellent practice between partners it is possible to increase the number and range of students exposed to a particular method thus making it possible to determine 'what works for whom'.
This porting process will make use of a further item of best practice adopted from EPCOS: that of 'bundles'. 'Bundles' form a concise specification of an approach for transfer. Further, they identify watch-points as well as sources of support material or tools. The transfer model seeks to disseminate techniques beyond computing in Phase 2 - this will take place in a controlled manner. A staged refinement model of transfer will be adopted, firstly within the consortium, then (where applicable) outside the computing domain but within our partner institutions before general release. Each stage of the transfer model will utilise bundles. For further details please see dissemination."
