  • First Year Support Strategies (FYSS) portal

    Welcome to the FYSS portal 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 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. If you only take one idea from any of these sites, the portal has fulfilled a purpose.
