Sir Ken Robinson’s challenge to re-think the western school system makes you think. Not only about how many times I found myself nodding in agreement but how we cannot ignore what goes on at primary and post-primary levels and the impact it has on the higher education sector. It is imperative that the transition from prior learning experiences to tertiary study is recognised as instrumental in ensuring students’ future success and retention on programmes of study. It is crucial that our students are not only introduced to their area of study in a meaningful way, but that they have a positive and engaging experience within the tertiary learning environment.
