Creagh, Tracy A., Nelson, Karen J., & Clarke, John A. (2011) Acknowledging social justice and equity through good practice for monitoring student learning engagement in FYE. In 14th Pacific Rim First Year in Higher Education Conference, 28 June - 1 July, 2011, Esplanade Hotel, Fremantle, WA.
As higher education institutions respond to government targets to widen participation, their student populations will become increasingly diverse, and the issues around student success and retention will be more closely scrutinised. The concept of student engagement is a key factor in student achievement and retention and Australasian institutions have a range of initiatives aimed at monitoring and intervening with students who are at risk of disengaging. Within the widening participation agenda, it is absolutely critical that these initiatives are designed to enable success for all students, particularly those for whom social and cultural disadvantage have been a barrier. Consequently, for the sector, initiatives of this type must be consistent with the concept of social justice and a set of principles would provide this foundation. This session will provide an opportunity for participants to examine a draft set of principles and to discuss their potential value for the participants’ institutional contexts.
