The University of Wollongong recognised that student access and transition is an important factor in student retention and success. To improve access, transition, retention and success a comprehensive range of mentoring, co-curricular and proactive student support activities have been made available to students with the aim of overcoming student barriers early and providing students with the information, skills and wrap around support for success. This Lifespan approach to student retention and success has been facilitated by the integration of learning analytics.
In this session David and Tracey will explain:
- The diverse challenges faced when adopting such an approach
