High Expectations? Why not !

A generic framework for achieving high quality in a student’s performance

Abstract:
High school students are used to a certain way of working in a protective school environment, closely supervised by their teachers. The collaborative partnership between Mediterranean College and the University of Derby involves a transition to the more demanding academic environment, which requires certain skills and specific ways of operating and working. This includes the need to discover and acquire knowledge, but also to critically evaluate all the information that is offered to them and it demands a well-defined working framework. As students themselves begin to understand the academic demands of the modules, the role of the academic tutor is vital in showing the way to these students and helping them progress, up to the level where their work can even become part of the academic community by publication in a conference or journal. If these requirements are met, we can definitely have high expectation from nearly all of them. This workshop is led by Mediterranean College and involves participation by a Programme Leader and a group of students studying Business and Computing undergraduate and post graduate programmes.
