Carter, S. and Laurs, D. (2014). Developing generic support for doctoral students: Practice and pedagogy. London and New York: Routledge.

In response to the global imperative for increased doctoral completions, universities around the world are recognising the potential for  generic support to complement subject-specific supervision. This multidisciplinary, multi-voiced book (with contributions from practitioners working and researching in the USA, UK, UAE, Australia and New Zealand) explores the opportunities and challenges of providing  campus-wide support for PhD students.  As well as detailing programmes and workshops that address specific needs, the book highlights the often precarious positioning of learning centres,  exhorting TLAs to showcase their work within the wider institutional setting at every opportunity.“

The book is available for purchase (in both hardback & paperback) from Routledge.

Bodkin-Allen S., Hoffman, J., & Whittle, J. (2012).  Report on the Committed Learners Project. 
The aim of the Committed Learners Project (CLP) is to identify practices to foster student engagement, improve student retention and enhance successful completion of programmes. This project involved three phases:
• A review of the literature relating to student engagement
• A questionnaire distributed to a variety of staff employed at ITPs, including those in administrative and management roles
• Interviews with teaching staff and those involved in learning support
This report is available from the Ako Aotearoa site
