Return to VicTeach 2014


Kia ora katou

Many thanks for your contribution to our productive Vic Teach session on Wednesday on First year experience (FYE) –to share first trimester experiences and seek constructive strategies and tactics to improve the FYE. There was lively discussion and a shared understanding of the issues and possible solutions and this is recorded in the documents attached.

1. Summary notes sheet – covers the notes from groups on the key areas discussed ( in no particular order) 2. FYE Mindmaps – these mind maps cover the feedback discussion after group work

For those of you who were not at the original FYE session held at the beginning of this year here is a link to that material – you may find this interesting and informative http://hub.vicinnovate.ac.nz/incubator_wiki/index.php/Transitioning_from_School_to_University

This link includes: ü FYE principles ü Emergent adult personal traits and implications for teaching (ie why stds are the way they are! ) ü Impact of NCEA ü Examples of FYE in practice at VUW ü Group discussion notes

The organising group for this topic will be meeting next week to set up future planning and follow up ideas so if you have any more thoughts/ideas to add or would like more involvement please contact any of us
