A practical approach to guiding students through the transition from FE to beyond Philip Perry and Lisa Webb - Coventry University, Coventry with Karen Johnson and Dave Hassell - Hereward College, Coventry in association with CWLNN (Coventry & Warwickshire Lifelong Learning Network) With the landscape of education in a seemingly constant process of shift, the HE sector finds students entering degree programmes from a variety of pre-HE / access courses, and at various different points in their lives. Drawing on successful PDP innovations across the School of Art & Design, and in response to work developed as part of a 5-week induction programme, Philip Perry and Lisa Webb have worked with Karen Johnson and Dave Hassell from Coventry’s Hereward College to develop teaching material intended to assist in the cultural and academic transition from HE to FE. Ten handouts have been developed, with consideration for traditional and digital journaling methods (specifically pebblePAD and Mahara), that provoke FE students to engage with reflective practice. By recognising and actively participating in autonomous learning, reflection, self-criticism and action-planning, the student becomes more self-aware and understanding of learning and teaching styles that they will encounter the following year.
