Registrations are now being accepted for a one-day Forum entitled: Breaking the Barriers: Forum on supporting and engaging first-in-family university learners and their families. The Forum will present findings from a research project funded by an Office of Learning and Teaching grant; a collaborative study between the University of Wollongong (lead), Open Universities Australia and the University of Newcastle. The Forum is a free event to be held on 12th February 2015 from 9am – 3pm at University of Wollongong, NSW.
This is both an information sharing event and an opportunity to network and discuss with colleagues about how best to support this particular student cohort. This one-day Forum will include presentations on first in family students who are studying in online and face to face modes as well as insights into the specifics of students studying at an enabling, pre-degree and also undergraduate level.
