Stepping Up: Supporting student nurses with their transition into the University

Learning Services are currently working in collaboration with colleagues in the Faculty of Health and Social Care on a pre-entry module ‘Stepping Up to Edge Hill University’. 

The aim of the pre-entry module, delivered via the Blackboard Open Education platform, is to support students with their transition into their academic programme at the University.  The learning modules are designed to be interactive and engaging with embedded videos and quizzes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Objectives of the module include:

  • Meeting the academic teams
  • Expectations of the department/the course
  • Introduction to the terminology and language of the University
  • What to expect during the first few weeks
  • Help and support available from Learning Services and other support departments
  • Discussion opportunities with other students on the same course

Student Peer Mentoring- the bigger picture

Student Peer Mentoring is not something done in isolation but is interconnected with many other aspects of the student experience i.e. transitions, personal tutoring, wellbeing. As we now build the bigger picture it is anticipated that we will see more holistically the relevance of Student Peer Mentoring to these other very important aspects and furthermore be able to see its impact in important areas such as retention and attainment.

 

Student Peer Mentoring

Thank you to all who  attended our very lively and informative group meeting. We have now agreed that there is much activity going on around the university as depicted on our google doc which has been sent with a report to LTC for their consideration.
