Cloud created by:

Tricky Topics are topics that students struggle to understand. This eSTEeM-funded project seeks to identify and address these conceptual misunderstandings across three OU modules through the use of a newly-developed Teaching Tricky Topic process.
By doing so, we aim to improve student retention and satisfaction; develop students’ deeper understanding of difficult concepts; improve students’ marks on those modules and improve KPIs and SEaM data. We also intend to investigate the practicalities of embedding Tricky Topic process within current OU module presentation and production model.
This CALRG conference poster will give an update on the progress made so far on this.
