Starting university can be an exciting and yet daunting time for students, especially if it is their first time at university, or if it has been a while since they last studied.
Providing students upfront with the information and tools they need to become independent, resourceful learners, and giving them opportunities to make connections with their peers is critical. Doing so can help reduce cognitive overload and foster an active support network that will be invaluable throughout their studies.
To help you support students in this way an online topic orientation tip sheet has been created. It offers simple strategies for developing a consistent, well-structured and informative online topic orientation to help put students on the path to success.
