Tackling transition! Peer mentoring in engineering education:a UK perspective

Clark, R. and Andrews, J. (2014). Tackling transition! Peer mentoring in engineering education:a UK perspective. IN: SEFI conference proceedings. Société Eropéenne pour la Formation des Ingénieurs.


This paper builds on previous work (Clark, 2009; Clark & Andrews 2011, 2014) to continue the debate around a seemingly universal question…“How can educational theory be applied to engineering education in such a way so as to make the subject more accessible and attractive to students? It argues that there are three key elements to student success; Relationships, Variety & Synergy (RVS). By further examining the purposefully developed bespoke learning and teaching approach constructed around these three elements (RVS) the discourse in this paper links educational theory to engineering education and in doing so further develops arguments for the introduction of a purposefully designed pedagogic approach for use in engineering education.
