Deakin's Transition Framework
- Successful Transition at Deakin University: Introduction to Transition Framework for Commencing Students (684 KB)
The Transition Framework has been developed with the objective of creating a common baseline of experience for all commencing students, from which creative and enhanced delivery can be shared and developed.
The Framework draws on research and good practice in retention and transition and was developed in consultation with staff across Deakin. The Framework was endorsed by the Student Experience Sub-Committee, Teaching and Learning Committee and Academic Board in 2009.
The Framework forms the basis for Faculties and Divisions to develop a 12-month plan to assist the transition of commencing Deakin students. It should be viewed in the context of a holistic approach to course design, skills development and student support.
