Abstract

In 2012, University of Southern Queensland (USQ) piloted the Student Personalised Academic Road to Success (SPARS), a student-centred framework that offers personalised academic learning support to enhance student success. The framework is underpinned by Chickering & Reisser's (1993) and Bronfenbrenner's (1979) theories in student development, situated in Tait's (2000) student support framework for open and distance learning, with added connection to student engagement (Kuh et al, 2007). SPARS facilitates a rethink of student experience by marrying student support services, academic and technologies – to form interconnections that are more likely to produce a more effective educational experience (Pascarella & Terenzini, 2005).
