This focus of this seminar is an initiative in which sociological insights were used to develop holistic first year undergraduate learning and teaching practices. The aim was to promote retention and success through integrating induction into curriculum delivery. The seminar will include an outline of the intervention and the thinking behind it, and will provide participants with extensive opportunity to discuss: contemporary challenges facing HEIs in relation to transitions; the usefulness of both the sociological and teaching and learning literatures; and their own initiatives and experiences. As such the seminar provides a forum to exchange good practice.
Speakers: Dr Peter Watts (Senior Lecturer in Sociology)
Sarah Cant (Principal Lecturer in Sociology)
