First Year Experience Webinars 4-8 October 2021

From 4 to 8 October, the FYE workstream facilitated a series of webinars. The webinars were reflections on the challenges faced in supporting first year students and proposals for evidence-based solutions for the future were made. Each of the five workstream institutions presented on their experiences in supporting these students and what data shows in terms of what needs to be improved. Recordings of the webinars are available on our Siyaphumelela Youtube Channel with the specific links for each provided below.
