Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The objective of the 50 minute session was to encourage participants to think about:
• Co-ordinated support for all students
• Good practice already in existence

The 4 groups (approximately 6 people in each group) started by examining what was meant by coordinated support. Each group was directed to consider one of the following questions.
1 How do we get joined up communication between programme leaders, academic teaching staff and non-academic staff?
2 As there will be a mix of support needs what should be drop-in and what should be built in?
3 How do we encourage peer support and a learning community?
4 How do we encourage the ‘student voice?
The groups then reported their thoughts back to the rest of the participants.
