Case studies into educational transition (0)

The G8WAY partnership currently is undertaking case studies into transition pathways in order to identify trends or patterns in user behaviours, expectations, motivations and experienced support in transitions, which will form the basis for the building of learning scenarios. The best ways to gather this data is to talk to people having completed, or are currently undergoing, educational transitions. This might be through individual interviews or through a focus group or group discussion. A first series of interviews was conducted from April to May 2010, from which the following cases were derived.
