  • First Year Support Strategies (FYSS) portal

    Welcome to the FYSS portal which is designed to contextualise and improve the take-up of first-year resources available to academic staff. The portal is based on research conducted with staff at Flinders University who teach first year students and on numerous national and international studies. It functions as a communication tool and as an interface for a range of interconnected sites which house materials that staff can repurpose in their own teaching contexts: knowledge-enhancing resources such as video clips; published research; interactive elements such as quizzes; and a community of practice (CoP) repository.
