SALEIE WP4 deliverables

Click to go the Student and Staff Support Hub homepage

This section of the Student and Staff Support Hub is aimed to give access to the deliverable reports produced within work package 4 of the SALEIE project. Work package 4 is concerned with Widening participation and student support.


 

Work package 4 (Widening participation and student support)

This work package will explore approaches to widening participation in EIE programmes across Europe. It will consider the specific needs of learners with disabilities pertinent to education in EIE. Consideration will be given to conventional Higher Education learners, those studying part-time, distance learners, International students, lifelong learners, students with disabilities and those who traditionally do not see conventional higher education as their route to personal development. Each of these types of learner have different support needs especially in relation to developing competence in laboratory skills and generic, transferable competences (such as group working, presentation skills, creativity, etc.). The work package will explore the implications on the education system of students with disabilities (reference of best practice across Europe in supporting students with such issues, eg: Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Mental Health, Autism, Aspergers, etc.).

Deliverable 4.1 (Pan-European Widening Participation and Diversity Survey)

Surveys will be designed to explore the forms, scope and effectiveness of existing student support systems across Europe, specifically:

  • The distribution of learners with specific needs across Europe

  • The percentage of students with specific needs who undertake ERASMUS exchanges and industrial work placements

  • The content of widening participation policies and practices across Europe

  • Common perceptions of formal learning (eg. Being ashamed of their gaps or thinking they are too old to learn)

  • Marketing materials to attract learners with specific needs to EIE

  • Perception of ERASMUS and Industrial partner institutions of support systems for learners with specific needs

The surveys will be distributed amongst project partners for their completion and by their networks to widen the picture across Europe. The questionnaires will also be made public on the project website to enable any other institution who wishes to contribute to the project to do so.

Deliverable 4.2 (Best Practice Exemplars in Supporting Students with Specific Needs)

This deliverable will comprise a collation of examples of best practice in supporting learners with specific needs. The output will be in the form of a series of case studies, which illustrate examples of best practice. In seeking out examples of best practice consideration will be given to the differing needs laboratory based, practical activities, work experience and placements within the EIE discipline areas. Programmes and modules already aligned to the key global technical challenges (see WP 3) will be carefully reviewed to ensure that appropriate learner support systems can be put into place in these future critical technical areas. The cases will be produced in English (but see deliverable WP 4.6). The case studies will all be published on the public section of the project website.

Deliverable 4.3 (Supporting Students with Specific Needs Models)

This deliverable will be a set of models of best practice support for different types of specific needs. The models will be design so that they can be easily understood and applied within new institutions. Each model will include practical steps that should be taken to create the support system and a clear statement of all those who will be affected within the education system and how. The cases will be produced in English (but see deliverable WP4.6).

Deliverable 4.4 (Marketing Programmes to Widen Participation Report)

This deliverable will be a collation of case study examples of best practice in marketing programmes that encourage learners with difficulties to engage equally well to other learners. The case studies will be written so that they can be easily understood and applied within new institutions. Each case will describe the approach taken, its objective and provide examples of wording, the rationale for inclusion of images, etc. The cases will be produced in English (but see deliverable WP4.6). The case studies will all be published on the public section of the project website.

Deliverable 4.6 (Translation of models and best practice case studies)

Translated versions of the best practice exemplars in supporting students with specific needs, the models for supporting these students and best practice case studies in the marketing of programmes for maximum appeal will all be translated into a range of European languages as considered useful by the project partners. All translated versions will be published on the public section of the project website.

Deliverable 4.7 (Widening Participation Centre Website)

A centre for excellence widening participation and support for learners with specific needs will be created in of the publically visible part of the project website. Visitors will be able to view all the case studies and models of good practice found within the project and view them in a range of different languages. All resources will be created so they are accessible and easy to use by interested higher education institutions. Examples of where they are currently being used with contact names where available will be provided so that interested parties can make contact with that institution to pursue further enquiries.
