The checklist is designed for staff involved in supporting first year student success and provides an opportunity to recognise and map out the range of activities in place on their programme(s) that can enrich the first year experience.

The resource can also be used as a tool to plan for development to consolidate and extend current activities. The focus is on maximising what is effective in their context, not identifying deficits or gaps.

This version was prepared in consultation with students, first year tutors and other staff involved in teaching and supporting first years from City, Tallaght and Blanchardstown campuses. The original checklist was developed under the auspices of the DIT Learning, Teaching and Assessment Strategies committee.
