If grades, feedback, or data from the Dashboard reveal that a student is at risk of failing, what should be the right response to supporting them? Philosophically and practically this is problematic. Students are adults, they have the right to fail, but surely they also have the right to make informed decisions.
This session will be part workshop and part systems thinking exercise and will be presented by by Ed Foster, Student Engagement Manager, CADQ, Rowena Hill, School of Social Sciences, and Sandra Price, Libraries and Learning Resources.
We would like to explore effective strategies for engaging students who are at risk of failing, but also use this as a consultation for exploring how we could re-design the Dashboard to improve how we provide joined up academic support.
Starting at 1.30 pm, this two-hour session will use a combination of presentation, discussion and systems thinking to explore the issues of academic support.
