This project uses VLE websites as learning networks for two OU modules, to connect together participants in a complex problem scenario and collaboratively learn how to make an improvement. This second pilot is part of an operational eSTEeM project that aims to identify and address student conceptual misunderstandings using a Teaching Tricky Topics process. OU ALs in scattered locations hold vital insights into these misunderstandings, which are not always systematically gathered.

The project aims to contribute towards a model for identifying and addressing tricky topics in all modules across the University in the future, improving retention and the student experience.
