The OU centre for STEM pedagogy
The benefits of peer mentoring for students studying in Higher Education are well established and have been demonstrated in online, blended and hybrid settings. Best practice in establishing financially sustainable schemes in online settings at a large scale is under researched.
There is a legal requirement (Equality Act, 2010) to provide students who have declared disabilities with reasonable adjustments which address their learning needs.
The project aims to evaluate student buddy experience on S112, S(XF)206, S209 and S390 in EEES to understand the drivers behind volunteering, impacts on employability and whether sustainable communities of buddies can be fostered.
S112, Science: concepts and practice, was a new science module at the Open University in 2017.
