There are a number of networks within the first year community at Flinders and various ways of connecting with them.
A First Year Community of Practice (FYCoP) has been established for staff who work with first year students. Established in 2009, this CoP meets monthly to explore and share ideas about how to support the diverse needs of first year students and develop curriculum that encourages them to succeed. All staff interested in teaching first year students are welcome to attend. For details please contact Sue Pyke and Ann Luzeckyj
The first year fora (which occur sporadically) provide further opportunity to hear local and national experts on teaching first year students and to discuss items of interest or concern.
