Following the introduction of online only modules in the STEM faculty at the Open University, we wanted to canvass tutor perceptions of this new style of delivery of modules, and assess the impact this has had on their support of students. Tutors on 5 modules across science disciplines were asked to complete a questionnaire addressing various aspects of their tuition and their perceptions of how students were engaging with the online only material.
In this session we will share the findings of our research project, highlighting some of the key themes identified and reflecting on the variability of some of the findings based on the module and previous experience of online tuition by the tutors.
