Are you responsible for inducting new students in your department? Perhaps you have an academic interest in how people transition to a new stage in their education? Whether you work with postgraduates or undergraduates you are invited to a free one-day internal conference here at Warwick on 23 September 2015.
The aim of the Transition into Warwick conference is to facilitate academic departments to exchange ideas and practice around induction. It is also a chance to discuss the many changes now taking place at Warwick, such as the proposed Week 0 for undergraduates; the various university induction packages available to postgraduates, and the guidance document Minimum Requirements for Induction. It is also an opportunity to explore how better, more nuanced communication with students can ensure their several transitions are accomplished smoothly.
The conference is a collaboration between the Senior Tutor, Stephen Lamb, and the Central Induction team in Student Careers and Skills.
