Categories and processes

On reviewing the workshop data, we found the following categories and associated processes… The categories correspond with those listed in our previous blog, though sometimes they carry a different label.


  • Assessment that is designed to be student-centred and relevant 
  • Curricula that are educationally sound
  • Teaching techniques that are collaborative, real-world, student-centred and technology-enabled 
  • Pedagogical style that is enquiry-based and work integrated


  • Information about programs, courses, milestones and student support services
  • Services & resources related to assistance with finances, and personal and academic capabilities
  • People rich access to personal advice, advocacy and peer support


  • Interaction involving personal and engaging communication with staff, involvement with other students, and professional and social connections
  • Inclusive activities that are equitable, culturally rich interactions in the university and wider communities
  • Identity development opportunities in the areas of  professional, student and leadership development


  • Academic literacies that focus on embedded peer-to-peer learning and academic skills development. 
  • Personal literacies that develop personal and professional attributes within the curricula
  • Activities that cross staffing, student lifecycle, functional and student/staff boundaries


  • Staff development in student engagement
  • Roles and responsibilities which engender engagement
  • Evidence base which is collected, analysed and disseminated to influence staff practice
  • Communication which is enabled by procedures and social media tools
  • Learning environments where spaces, resources and access enable learning
We would be interested to hear if these are representative of your experience.
