The Colleges Sample Clauses

The Colleges. An important element of the University’s organisational reform program was the integration of VET and higher education delivery into a more focused college structure, allowing for stronger pathway and development opportunities for students from 2013. Importantly, our existing strengths in learning and teaching and research and knowledge exchange have driven the design of the seven new integrated Colleges. The new Colleges, established 1 January 2013, are: • College of Arts • College of BusinessCollege of EducationCollege of Engineering and Science • College of Health and Biomedicine • College of Law and Justice • College of Sport and Exercise Science These seven integrated Colleges join the existing VU College which supports language and learning development for students across the institution, together with the newly established Trades College which focuses on vocational training and pre-tertiary curriculum approaches. During 2013, each of the Colleges will develop a strategic plan which outlines how they intend to deliver on the objectives of the Strategic Plan. These new academic entities will be critical to delivering VU’s aspiration of providing our diverse range of students a high quality, well- supported and exciting learning experience. Learner Support Empowering students from diverse countries and cultures, socio-economic and educational backgrounds through a distinctive, excellent and supported learning experience is a priority for VU. Successful transitions at all levels will be supported by a transitions pedagogy approach which draws upon a range of evidence-based teaching and learner support strategies to increase retention and completion. These approaches include peer to peer learning support, embedded literacy and numeracy development, co-curricular academic skills development, and structured formative assessment and feedback processes. Transitions pedagogy at particular hot spots such as the first year of the proposed Career Start Bachelor degrees will be a focus. VU College provides expert support in transitions pedagogy and learner support in general, and supports the integrated Colleges in collaboration with the Educational Development Team within the Centre for Collaborative Learning & Teaching. These new support services coupled with the new integrated College structures will provide a sound basis from which we can focus on improving the quality of the student experience.
