The module will commence with a 2 day workshop in Welcome Week in which the students will be introduced to the concepts which they will apply to the groups of Stage 1 students they will mentor. The workshop will conclude with the students developing their own plans for intervening with groups of Stage 1 students. The latter will be selected from those taking Engineering mathematics 1. The brief given to the masters students will be to devise activities which will provide for a smooth transition from prior educational experience to Higher Education via supporting the development of skills in mathematics. These plans will be reviewed in weeks 1 and 2 before the mentors are introduced to their mentee group in weeks 3. A tutorial will be held each week in which the mentors will discuss their progress.
