Creagh, Tracy A., Nelson, Karen J., & Clarke, John A. (2012) Development of a good practice guide to safeguard student learning engagement. In International First Year in Higher Education Conference, 26-29 June, 2012, Sofitel Brisbane Central, Brisbane, QLD.
This paper reports on the development of a good practice guide that will offer the higher education sector a framework for safeguarding student learning engagement. The good practice guide and framework are underpinned by a set of principles initially identified as themes in the social justice literature which were refined following the consolidation of data collected from eight selected “good practice” Australasian universities and feedback gathered at various forums and presentations. The good practice guide will provide the sector with examples of institutional wide efforts which respond to national priorities for student retention and will also provide exemplars of institutional practices for each principle to facilitate the uptake of sector-wide good practice. Participants will be provided with the opportunity to discuss the social justice principles, the draft good practice guide and identify the practical applications of the guide within individual institutions.
