TAG HEA Evidence-based Practice Seminar

University of Central Lancashire - Scholars Bar, Foster Building
4 March 2010 10:00-15:00

TAG is a JISC funded research project that aims to explore the impact on retention of the creation of a dynamic, interactive, web based platform of support, which enables potential students to develop realistic expectations of HE.  It was developed in response to research, such as that referenced in the report by the Comptroller and Auditor General (2007), which looked at retention and withdrawal in HE.  Literature shows many students are coming from backgrounds where they have no peers or family members with experience of HE to draw on (Thomson and Quinn (2007) and the students’ expectations of university do not match the reality.

Delegates will have an opportunity to think about how they can support students during their transition into HE and potential ways of developing additional support, students can access as and when they require it.  They will also have identified resources available to support them to do this.  The TAG Team aims to make the TAG project as accessible to institutions as possible and would seek to gain and understanding from the attendees about possible barriers at their institutions to adopting TAG.  This will inform the development of the TAG resources and support options the TAG Team can offer to other institutions looking to adopt the TAG project.
