The OU centre for STEM pedagogy
Issue: student well-being and anxiety. Accessibility of tutorial type resources.
Many students experiencing problems with abstract mathematics either already experience maths anxiety or develop it. They can also lack self-efficacy and mathematical resilience.
Adobe Connect has replaced OULive as the OU’s online tuition delivery tool and the current university plan is for tutors to work in shared online rooms for cohort/cluster-wide events.
There is much research regarding students who struggle mathematically early (school, Y1 UG) but not for good students who `hit a wall’ at level 3. Some persevere while others drop-out.
Highly Commended at the 3rd eSTEeM Scholarship Projects of the Year Awards 2020 under the category - Innovative/Original Approach to Teaching.
