tandfonline.com – Effective measures of tailored learning support for Engineering Work-Based Learners in HE: A Case study

ABSTRACT

Since 2004, Aston University has been delivering work-based learning (WBL) engineering degrees to key UK Energy sector employers, such as National Grid. National measures for widening participation in HE, such as the Degree Apprenticeship Levy, have led to significant changes in learning background diversity of WBL cohorts, consequently increasing student requirement for additional learning-support in HE Institutions (HEIs). To address these challenges, an intervention strategy was formulated in collaboration with Aston University’s Learning Development Centre. Our methodology gradually embedded a provision of tailored learning-support sessions/workshops in mathematics and effective communication skills within WBL curricula. Integrating this support has led to marked increases in student engagement,grade-attainment, and stakeholder satisfaction. This case study is pertinent to HE’s current STEM sector focus on developing WBL programmes, where the flexible methodologies established here can serve as practical models for other HEIs in the delivery of ‘in-employment’ education, in response to the fast-changing workplace.

Jeg er ansat som adjunkt hos Læreruddannelsen i Jelling, hvor jeg underviser i matematik, specialiseringsmodulet teknologiforståelse, praktik m.m. Jeg har tidligere været ansat som pædagogisk konsulent i matematik og tysk hos UCL ved Center for Undervisningsmidler (CFU) i Vejle og lærer i udskolingen (7.-9. klasse) på Lyshøjskolen i Kolding. Jeg er ejer af og driver bl.a. hjemmesiderne www.lærklokken.dk og www.iundervisning.dk, ggbkursus.dk og er tidligere fagredaktør på matematik på emu.dk. Jeg går ind for, at læring skal være let tilgængelig og i størst mulig omfang gratis at benytte.
