What’s the ‘Narrative to Transition’ project?

Dave and I are really pleased that we have won the University of Northampton Learning Enhancement and Innovation Bids 2017-18.

What is the ‘Narrtives for Transition’ project?

This project explores a new way of improving the engagement of international students with pre-sessional English and Study Skills courses. Narratives from recent graduates now in the world of work will be video-recorded to collect accounts of their current employment, their uses of English, and examples of critical incidents they encountered along the way. These teaching materials will be generated to show links between L&T methods in UK universities and employability. These will improve students’ motivation and support them to navigate the transition from the learning situations they were familiar with, to the expectations of their new situation.
