Quinn, Carole, Bennett, Joanna, Humphreys, Julia K., Nelson, Karen J., & Clarke, John A. (2011) Students as advisors in an intervention program for at-risk students : The QUT experience. In 14th Pacific Rim First Year in Higher Education Conference : Design for Student Success, 28 June - 1 July, 2011, Esplanade Hotel, Fremantle, WA.
A managed team of discipline-experienced and trained later year students are used as Student Success Advisors (SSAs) in the Student Success Program, an intervention program that manages student engagement by identifying and supporting first year students at-risk of disengaging from learning. This report focuses on the recruitment and training of SSAs and the day-to-day challenges they and their managers face. The Nuts & Bolts session provides participants with opportunities to discuss the applicability to their institutional contexts of the recruitment and training processes and the “solutions” to the challenges used at QUT.
