Developing strategies that work: An institutional approach to student induction, transition and retention

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference proceeding (ISBN)peer-review


Effective induction supports students’ transition into higher education and can have a positive impact on retention. Alongside an introduction to their specific programme, learners also require support at specific transition points, particularly where the academic level of learning outcomes increases, and more autonomous and independent learning is expected. Adopting a crowdsourcing approach this session aims to provide delegates with the opportunity to express and exchange ideas, to share opinions, and to seek out new knowledge in order to support the creation of strategy suitable for use within their local context with the ultimate goal of improving students' university experience.
