This repository contains the contents of a toolkit designed by Jeremy H. Kidwell and Roshni Barot at the University of Birmingham. The toolkit distills our experience deploying student consultancy projects in undergraduate teaching in 2017-2019 and is meant to provide resources for faculty and support staff seeking to run their own UG consultancy projects.

The course here has been compiled with bookdown, and so the live instance of the course is compiled from openly accessible resources located in this repository. If you’re interested in doing something similar, there are a number of good options, including: gitbook, mkdocs, readthedocs which technically uses Sphinx or daux.

Directory structure includes:

  • README.md this README file displayed on Github
  • docs a folder containing the compiled book in html, .pdf and epub formats
  • course.bib a bibliography of items used for the course in BibTeX format
  • index.Rmd Contains initialization settings, and preface content
  • 01-Overview.Rmd About this toolkit
  • 02-Chapter1.Rmd Step 1: Finding employer partners
  • 03-Chapter2.Rmd Step 2: Course (re)design and Delivery
  • 04-Chapter3.Rmd Step 3: Course Feedback
  • 05-Conclusion.Rmd Conclusion
