Within my role as a learning support lecturer I am involved with students from the health faculty. I offer support for students on a one to one basis as well as take tutorials for health subjects within students first semester. An important aspect of my role is to liase with health faculty staff, in order to be familiar with course content and lecturers expectations of the students within the faculty. Another important focus of my the work I do is facilitate Keys classes and teach within the keys to Academic Writing Success programme. Assisting first year students. As a result I have become very interested in ways to facilitate the transition into university. I see a students university experience not only as an experience to learn material within a curriculum but more a means to develop their view of the world and extend their experience.
