Using a mixed-methods approach to evaluate undergraduate performance and opinion: the effect of math tutorials on student math confidence and academic performance

Using a mixed-methods approach to evaluate undergraduate performance and opinion: the effect of math tutorials on student math confidence and academic performance

Veggel, Nieky van, author

As part of my PgCert in Higher Education Practice, I undertook a learning and teaching research project into the effect of small group mathematics tutorials on student confidence and academic performance. I chose this project because it related directly to my practice as a higher education lecturer: I regularly supported first year animal science and animal management students who were struggling with math, although my institution provided math support tutorials.This case describes how I undertook this project, which methods I chose, and what some of the learning moments for me were. I provide a list of five tips and some useful extra reading to support those who wish to undertake similar projects. During this project, I developed a better appreciation of learning and teaching research methodologies, and I also reflected on the value of understanding research methodology for education practitioners
