Professor Sally Kift is a leader in transition pedagogy and the first-year experience, and we are excited to welcome her to Flinders to host this important workshop.
Transition pedagogy (Kift, 2015; Kift, Nelson & Clark, 2010; Kift & Nelson, 2005) offers course designers, academics, professional staff and institutional leaders an integrative framework and common language for whole-of-institution approaches that build curriculum and support structures to ensure student success is not left to chance. Working in partnership with students and harnessing intentional curriculum design as the academic and social organising device for the student experience, transition pedagogy enables learning, success and wellbeing for all learners, whatever their background or educational experience, in both online and face-to-face courses.
The Centre for Innovation in Learning and Teaching, together with Associate Professor Lydia Woodyatt and the Flinders University Retention Working Group, are proud to present this Learning and Teaching Academy workshop.
Date: Wednesday, 8 December 2021
Time: 1:00 – 3:00pm AEDT
