The Final Report of the project is now available. Entitled “Enabling retention: processes and strategies for improving student retention in university-based enabling programs. Final Report 2013”, it was launched on 28 November 2013 at the inaugural conference of the National Association of Enabling Educators of Australia (NAEEA) at the Australian Catholic University’s Melbourne campus.
The Report is available from the Resource Library of the Australian Government Office for Learning and Teaching website (www.olt.gov.au).
The full Report covers the background to the project, the results of the study into the nature of student attrition in enabling programs – which turns out to be substantially different to that in undergraduate degree programs – and a discussion of what this means for strategies to enhance student retention including some specific suggestions for action.
