Bangor Summer School: Supportive methods of supplementary work assessment to increase retention engagement and attainment - HEA Annual Conference 2017 - Generation TEF: Teaching in the spotlight

As part of Bangor University’s commitment to student retention and the HEA Transition Retention and Attainment (Wales) Strategic Enhancement Programme the School of Psychology identified an opportunity to support students redeeming failure in years one and two via changes to supplementary work assessment. This session outlines these adjustments and demonstrates the success of a one-week summer school supported by both academics and post-graduate instructors which has now been adopted across the institution. Students demonstrated high levels of engagement were more likely to progress (contributing to improved retention) and were better prepared both academically and logistically for the upcoming year.
