This case study has been developed as part of the LTSN Engineering Teaching Awards 2003-2004, from data gathered through a demonstration of the teaching and learning materials available, interviews with the tutor and a student focus group. A novel approach has been taken to incorporate key skills development and PDP into the 'Field and Enterprise Skills' module for first year civil engineering students at Coventry University. The case study introduces the background, students' perspective, benefits, issues etc of this approach.
