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.

Our focus

The focus is the First Year Experience and how we best provide it on the Springfield campus.

Our role

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.

Our intent

  • 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.
