Reach! University Transition Workshops, Autumn 2020-21
In the first term of the 2020-21 academic year, we developed and delivered a series of workshops to support new students making the transition to university. Across eight interactive sessions, we covered topics including Academic Culture and Integrity, Reflection and Feedback, and Critical Thinking.
The sessions were well-attended by students from a broad range of academic backgrounds and received positive feedback.
We also delivered an adapted version of the series to our first-year students based at Northwestern Polytechnical University (NPU) in Xi'an, China.
