Abstract

Each discipline has its own requirements and ways of thinking. This workshop will focus on how we can develop students’ graduate capabilities from first year by enabling them to be effective learners, thinkers and practitioners in our disciplines. The workshop is aimed at curriculum developers, first year lecturers (any discipline), first year coordinators and academic developers. Interactive activities will be used to challenge participants to consider:
• What students need to know and do in order to lay the foundation in first year for attaining graduate capabilities and meeting required standards by the time they graduate?
• What bottlenecks are there to students learning those things –and what are the concepts that students find difficult as learners in the discipline?
• What strategies can we use to help students develop the skills they need to be effective learners, thinkers and practitioners in our disciplines?
