First Year Experience CoP
Members of the First Year Experience CoP attending the Experiential Learning session
The First Year Experience CoP started with membership initially drawn from the First Year Co-ordinators on the Springfield campus. It has expanded now and discussed issues such as orientation, Predictors for success - Professor Keithia Wilson from Griffith University addressed us on this one, experiential learning and the role of First Year Co-ordinators.
The focus is the First Year Experience and how we best provide it on the Springfield campus.
It is a group of like-minded individuals who come together to build domain knowledge by inviting speakers, reading papers and articles and then share our experience.
- To enhance the on-campus experience of our first year cohort at Springfield and develop our own capacity and visions in this regard
- It is funded by the Campus Director's budget
- We plan to invite other ourside speakers but also plan to invite our own members to address us on their interests and ideas and research.
