This case study has been developed from data gathered through observations of the teaching component, interviews with the tutor and a student focus group. This report describes the use of a combination of online diagnostic assessments, video-captured worked examples and face-to-face problem workshops to support an electricity and electronics module. The module is taken by approximately 150 students as part of a foundation year of a four-year course leading to bachelor-level degrees in physics, geophysics and engineering. The reasons why the students are taking the foundation year are varied.
