Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract

Abstract

The breadth and variety of transitions faced by students dictates there is no single fix measure to support students through these challenges. In fact, the ever more diverse and ever growing student body requires a greater variety of strategies and mechanisms to account for individual student preferences and needs. This has essentially swamped many existing transition management approaches leaving the modern academic in need of new, innovative, efficient and effective methods that are user and time friendly to cope with these challenges.

This workshop aims to describe recently successful developments in transition management as a means of generating discussion and practice sharing across the Institution.

The strategies discussed will include: Students 4 Students, the use of Blackboard Retention Centre, development of online skills support packages and students as partners in developing curricular resources.
