This guide is based on discussion and contributions by the E-learning and the First Year Student Experience (ELFYSE) special interest group (SIG).

Bringing together the areas of e-learning and student transition, retention and progression, this guide draws on both theory and practice to provide recommendations for and guidance to both academic and support staff on using learning technologies to support the first-year student experience. It is designed to help you think about ways of approaching and incorporating the use of learning technologies to support and enhance your students’ first-year experience.

Our own Learning Technologist, Julie Usher has contributed to two of the articles which have been included:

“Addressing issues of plagiarism in the first year” and “Easing cultural transition through peer-to-peer interactions”
