dc.description.abstractFrustrated by high student attrition and failure rates - both course-specific and overall within Victoria University of Wellington's (VUW) Level 4 bridging programme - I introduced team-based, creative learning exercises and assessments into the social science elective (UP016) within VUW's University Preparation programme. The introduction of team-based, creative learning (TBCL) has resulted in improved student retention and course pass rates for UP016 and has had positive socio-educational outcomes for both students and teachers. This paper discusses the rationales behind the introduction of TBCL; the operational mechanics (e.g. group formation) of TBCL; problems encountered and consequent refinements made; and the comparative success of TBCL within UP016.
