2005 pedagogical orientation program in the School of Architecture and Built Environment : a case study
Alderman, Lyn (2005) 2005 pedagogical orientation program in the School of Architecture and Built Environment : a case study. In Enhancing Student Success Conference Papers : Proceedings of the 2005 Enhancing Student Success Conference, The University of Newcastle, Ourimbah.
The University of Newcastle (UoN) offers various access and support programs for a range of students through the English Language and Foundation Studies Centre and a University orientation for students. At UoN, students are required to engage in a learning experience, meet program outcomes and demonstrate the core attributes of the University at each graduation point. For a University with a strong focus on access is there a missing facet to the access programs where students are required to study within a teaching delivery style which may be vastly different to their previous educational experience? This paper will describe a pedagogical orientation program currently delivered at UoN School of Architecture and Built Environment in 2005 to assist in the transition of students from different cultural and pedagogical backgrounds into “Problem Based Learning” as delivered by this School. Furthermore the paper will analyse how this program has enabled students from diverse backgrounds to understand and successfully embrace the new learning opportunities.
