Webinar: Student onboarding - Transition into UK higher ed.

Held on Thursday 10th December 2020.

The successful induction of students forms part of an effective transition into university life, which leads to better levels of achievement while improving student progression and retention. Now that so much teaching is happening remotely, ensuring students feel part of the university community is more important than ever - even after COVID-19 this will continue to be an essential, ongoing part of the academic environment.

But how do you promote socialisation, involvement and motivation at a distance? What can be improved in terms of open days, the post-offer period, induction week and the first teaching blocks? And how can this lead to improved recruitment, progression and retention?

This webinar addresses all of these issues and shows how students can become more engaged with the programme before and during their studies by applying gamification tools. We discuss the different phases of induction, the theoretical landscape to successful onboarding, and exploration of a best practice example which involved more than 2,500 university students.
