Too often course delivery is dogged by poor student participation and completion rates. Apart from leading to low morale and affecting course marketability, low student participation may also impact adversely upon a school’s compliance record. With these considerations in mind, this webinar aims to help schools implement effective, practical strategies that lead to increased student participation. The importance of quality programs and of seeing students always as individuals forms the webinar’s key components.
By the end of this workshop, participants will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Evaluate a range of strategies that a school can employ to increase student participation
- Help student support and administrative staff to work closely with academic staff to improve student participation
- Implement effective strategies fostering a campus community spirit that encourages student participation
- Implement teaching approaches that help students develop positive self-esteem and which, in turn, encourages participation.
