First Year Tutors – Light Lunches

Are you a 1st Year tutor or involved in teaching 1st years?

If so, we have another ‘light lunch’ series you won’t want to miss in October / November 2015!

Following on from the STEER (Student Transition: Expectations; Engagement; Retention)s initiative & the Light Lunches introduced in 2013-4, we would like to invite all first year tutors and teachers to our third ‘Transition into Higher Education’ Light Lunch Series.



Tutors meet at the Light Lunch at Bolton Street 22nd October 2015

What will the session involve?

As well as lunch, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Meet and chat with other first year tutors
  • Meet face to face with members of the DIT Campus Life, Access and Student Services and get useful information on the services   available to your students and the relevant contact details
  • Discuss strategies for referring students to the services available and the resources developed to support this process (October sessions) or discuss mid semester assessment and feedback implications (November sessions)
  • Discuss good practice and identify opportunities for collaboration and synergy, including an update on the Reimagining the TU4D first year prototype projects now underway; 
  • Provide feedback on what you would like to discuss / address at the follow up Light Lunches in Semester 2.
