Teaching and Learning Conference 2019: From fresher to professional in 60 minutes: A discipline-specific teaching and learning model to support transition into HE and develop expert performance

Transition into HE and its effect on student retention is a known issue for the sector and Sheffield Hallam University (SHU) faces an additional challenge in that its applied learning ethos is often unfamiliar to incoming learners. While large amounts of information are provided to students to support them in their physical transition to university academic transition has generally been less well supported. This session focuses on a transition model that gives new HE learners an authentic context to a topic from their discipline supplemented with a selection of authentic tasks to apply this knowledge while drawing on personal experiences.
