Abstract

Much learning takes place outside of formal class settings, yet students starting in higher education are not always well equipped with independent learning skills, appropriate self-knowledge or the required levels of intrinsic motivation This project used students as partners to develop resources that could be used by first year undergraduates in fluid mechanics, using activities and receiving feedback through the VLE, in order to build these three attributes of independent learnersWhile there were significant benefits to the students who developed the resources, the target students saw much lower benefits as a result of poorer than expected engagement.. The challenge this research presents is to develop activities that maximise engagement in large classes, as well as develop appropriate independent learning skills.
