|Title:||The Faculty Mentor Program in the Sciences: an innovative approach to supporting student learning||Contributor(s):||Godwin, Julie (author); Muldoon, Robyn (author)||Publication Date:||2003||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/1010||Abstract:||This paper provides a brief overview of current concerns about the learning needs of tertiary science students and a description of a specific student learning support program aimed at first year science students. The Faculty Mentor Program is an effective amalgamation of a range of learning support approaches. It is student centred, discipline-specific and is delivered via group work and one-to-one contact. Although designed primarily to meet the challenges related to tertiary literacy deficit, qualitative evaluation suggests the program also supports students in the more traditional mentoring areas. It has been effective in assisting in the integration and engagement of students in university life in the important first year of tertiary study.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||The 7th Pacific Rim - First Year in Higher Education Conference, Brisbane, Australia, 9th - 11th July, 2003||Conference Details:||The 7th Pacific Rim - First Year in Higher Education Conference, Brisbane, Australia, 9th - 11th July, 2003||Source of Publication:||Enhancing Transition to Higher Education: Strategies and Policies that Work.
