Student Learning Support Programmes That Demonstrate Tangible Impact on Retention, Pass Rates & Completion. 2nd Edition
Manalo, Emmanuel, Ed.; Marshall, Jenny, Ed.; Fraser, Cath, Ed.
Online Submission
This report comprises summations and brief case descriptions of some of the effective programmes and other support mechanisms that New Zealand Tertiary Learning Advisors (TLAs) provide for students in universities, polytechnics, institutes of technology, and other tertiary institutions. The programmes demonstrate tangible impact on student retention and success outcomes. The evidence offered varies across summations and includes both student satisfaction and student success data presented in a range of formats: statistical, evaluative comments, and personal narratives. Where possible--and this can depend upon the different management systems used by different institutions which allow TLAs access to different types of information and analysis--more than one form of evidence is provided to add strength and rigor to the results described. In some summations, this is already available; for others, it represents the next evolution of the process. The range of initiatives included in this edition are described here to facilitate shared learning amongst tertiary educators, to enhance understanding of strategies that make a difference to student learning, and to promote the use of methods that have been shown to effect better retention and completion rates for students in tertiary education. (Individual sections contain references, tables, figures, and footnotes.) [This project was funded by the Ako Aotearoa Northern Regional Hub. It is a report for Ako Aotearoa, the New Zealand National Centre for Tertiary Teaching Excellence, from members of the Association of Tertiary Learning Advisors of Aotearoa New Zealand (ATLAANZ).]
