Event description
Connecting the DOTS – Developmental Opportunities in Transitions for Students

About this event

Bookended by puberty and culturally defined adult roles, scientists now consider that adolescence extends from 10-24 years, meaning that the majority of undergraduate students are still adolescents, without fully developed cognitive, social, emotional and self-regulatory capacities.

This knowledge that many students in higher education are in developmental transition spotlights opportunities to construct academic and campus contexts and experiences that support this transition.

By drawing on their expertise in occupational science/therapy, psychology and neuroscience, the seminar hosts will support attendees to

1. Understand brain development in the context of current students in higher education settings.

2. Consider the risks and opportunities of contemporary socio-cultural contexts relating to student learning and life.

3. Identify practical strategies for enhanced student success and development of graduate attributes through the consideration of developmentally appropriate scaffolding in curriculum design, learning, teaching and student support.

Undergraduate and postgraduate research on student transitions will be showcased.

Cross-institution participation will be facilitated through a panel discussion with student representatives, academic and professional services staff, to consider how developmental transitions influence student learning, wellbeing and success.

This seminar is made possible through the financial support of the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education.
