CSU supports regional and remote distance education students

10 FEBRUARY 2012

The newly-established CSU Regional and Remote Learning Support Team will make regular visits to towns around NSW to enhance CSU distance education students' experience of their courses and their prospects for successful completion.

The newly-established Charles Sturt University (CSU) Regional and Remote Learning Support Team will make regular visits to towns around NSW to enhance CSU distance education students’ experience of their courses and their prospects for successful completion.
 
The team will visit Moree and Broken Hill on Tuesday 14, Bourke on Thursday 16, and Griffith on Thursday 16 and Friday 17 February.
 
Mr James Brann, manager the CSU Regional and Remote Learning Support Team said the team will provide orientation sessions, group workshops, and individual appointments to support CSU distance education students.
 
“The initial visits aim to orientate new students to the University to ensure that students studying by distance education have access to the necessary information and support to succeed in their studies,” Mr Brann said.
 
“These sessions are also open to continuing students.
 
“In addition to group presentations, students will be able to make individual face-to-face appointments with University staff, which is a great opportunity for students to get some personal support with whatever they are studying.
 
“Because studying by distance education can be an isolating experience for some students, we also aim to help students meet others studying in their area and to develop important support networks.
 
“The Regional and Remote Learning Support program provides students who may never visit their campus with access to support and information that students studying on campus may take for granted. There’s no such thing as a silly question to ask the team, and we encourage all students to attend sessions to meet staff and other students.”
 
Mr Brann said the team has already visited Parkes, Jindabyne and Cooma, and future visits will be based on student uptake and feedback to ensure the University continues to meet the needs of the students and the region. The dates and venues for coming visits are:
 
Broken Hill - Tuesday 14 February at the Western Institute of TAFE; three sessions at 10.30am-12noon, 1.30pm-3pm, and 5pm-6.30pm.
 
Moree - Tuesday 14 February at Moree Regional Library; three sessions at 10.30am-12noon, 1.30pm-3pm, and 5pm-6.30pm.
 
Bourke - Thursday 16 February at the Western Institute of TAFE; three sessions at 10.30am-12noon, 1.30pm-3pm, and 5pm-6.30pm.
 
Griffith - Thursday 16 at 5pm-6.30pm, and Friday 17 February at 10.30am-12pm at the Riverina Institute of TAFE.
