The aim of the project is to observe the current situation to gain an initial understanding of experiences around extensions which will then inform further scholarship and possibly practice. A further stage might involve trialling interventions, such as additional support for students with extensions or additional training/guidance to ALs on how to use extensions effectively. The project will focus on students and ALs on the stage 1 engineering modules, T192 and T194. T193 has not been included within this first stage of the project for two reasons; firstly to limit the scope of the project to something that can be achieved in the timeframe and also because looking at T192 and T194 will enable us to observe any changes in use of extensions by students as they progress through Stage 1.
