An article about engaging learners interests and anxieties about learning in their chosen discipline


Sarah Wasson offers an account of an engaging way to boost students’
confidence and help them to become fully involved in their own learning processes. While the story she tells is rooted in her own discipline, the methodology and the lessons to be drawn from her story are universally applicable and are particularly relevant to anyone working in the context of a Widening Participation programme.
