Developing engaged learners who understand strategies for success is known to help students in transitioning into Higher Education. However, this brings about a number of challenges for their teachers as learner characteristics in the 21st century are complicated by the range and variety of technologies that they engage with. Most learners are technologically connected and grazing (surface learning) and the role of the teacher is to encourage them into engaging with a dining experience (deep learning). Understanding their characteristics is essential in enabling students to develop learning strategies. The session will focus on developing an understanding of learner characteristics in 2019 and how those characteristics can be recognized (both by teachers and learners) and used to promote learning success. This knowledge will empower learners to understand what factors are associated with success in learning when transitioning to HE, and empower teachers to establish and sustain a collaborative community of engaged learners.
