‘Managing stats and data with confidence’ is an online module aimed at lessening Maths anxiety. It’s part of an OfS-funded trial called ‘Prepare for Postgrad’ designed to see whether the provision of an online PGT Masters pre-enrolment course can improve the transition from offer-holder to enrolment and retention among home students from Black Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) backgrounds and areas with the lowest rates of participation in HE (POLAR quintiles 1 and 2). This session gives an overview of the project with a focus on its design and development showcasing the University of Manchester Library’s innovative and award-winning approach to blended skills support.
