Students experience success in transition to post-secondary education when provided with opportunities to engage in teamwork, self-reflection, self-regulation, scaffolded learning, and making real-world connections. Some students experience barriers in accessing co-curricular and extra-curricular programs meant to support acquisition of these skills.
Project PATHS (Pedagogy that Aids Transition for Health Students) is a pan-Faculty of Health project to provide a curricular approach to embedding these skills within first- and second-year courses. Instructors will have access to evidence-informed open educational resources encompassing instructional materials, learning activities, and evaluation tools that they can adapt and include in their course design. The PATHS team is committed to creating engaging and innovative materials and content that are learner-centred, inclusive, accessible, relevant, and connected to real-world experiences.
