Student learning journey
At USQ the student learning journey (SLJ) is seen as a series of interactions between students and the university. Nine student groups and some 150 individual points of interaction have been identified.
Points of interaction correspond to a number of different phases:
Geoff Scott in his report called Accessing the Student Voice (2005) concluded that it is the whole experience that matters to students. Students are not concerned about whether or not a particular interaction is academic or administrative, but they are concerned about the quality of the interaction. In this context, the quality of interactions in the pre-enrolment phase is just as important as the quality of face-to-face and/ or virtual interactions in academic study or in completing study (including graduation ceremony and membership of the Alumni Network).
What is Meet - Up?
Meet – Up is a flexible student-centred peer learning program offered on campus and online. It provides opportunities and experiences for students to develop their academic learning skills and their understanding of course concepts in an informal peer-to-peer environment. Meet – Up sessions are led by trained student leaders who have previously done well in the course. Students engage with how to learn as well as what to learn.
