Transition and Adaptability in Educational and Organisational Contexts
Holliman, Andrew J.; Hulme, Julie; Wilson-Smith, Kevin
Psychology Teaching Review, v25 n1 p4-11 2019
The Division of Academics, Researchers and Teachers in Psychology (DARTP) hosted a symposium at the British Psychological Society's Annual Conference 2018, at which the concepts of transition and adaptability were explored within the context of higher and pre-tertiary education and in academic organisational contexts. The talks and discussions which occurred during the symposium considered some of the challenges and opportunities experienced by students and academic staff over the course of their respective academic journeys -- in and through university, to postgraduate study, and into employment within academic organisations -- with a focus on 'adaptability' during these transitional moments. The ultimate aim of the symposium, reflected in this article, was to explore current thinking, developments, and practice in this area, and stimulate debate, in order to better understand and support students and academic staff during transitional moments of their lives.
