StudyWISE intensive

designing and embedding an online module into an institution-wide strategy

Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster

Abstract

How to support (potentially) high numbers of students affected by a new academic progressions policy? And how could this fit into the wider ecology of support offered by the university? StudyWISE Intensive is an online module supporting students struggling in their studies, designed to revise key academic literacy skills and habits of mind. This poster showcases the pedagogical and UX design decisions used in this module to encourage user engagement and persistence. It further describes the wider ecology of institutional support and the ways in which StudyWISE Intensive has been embedded into the workflows and processes developed to support these students, in response to the new academic progression policy at a metropolitan Australian university.
