| 3C | Student Experiences of their Academic Transition from TAFE to Higher Education in Engineering

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Most students who pathway from an TAFE based Associate Degree to a Higher Education based Bachelor's Degree struggle with their academic transition. TAFE based pedagogies revolve around classroom based activities involving small classes with personalised instruction and facilitation. Higher Education based pedagogies revolve around didactic instruction in a lecture tutorial mode, with large classes and generalised instruction. It is argued then that students struggle because of this academic mismatch in pedagogies, with students largely unprepared for this transition. This is particularly of concern as students that pathway to the Bachelor Honours degree get advanced standing into the second year of the course.
