    Abstract

    Drawing on both Graduate Qualities and First Year in Higher Education (FYHE) literature, this nuts and bolts session will discuss the implementation of the newly developed graduate qualities into the core topics in a Bachelor of Health Science (BHS) program. The setting for paper is one of Australia’s last universities to implement graduate qualities, which is currently undertaking major curriculum reforms. Given these changes, this exercise provides an active example of how the mapping process was undertaken, the challenges in conceptualisation and implementation. Participants will be provided with some of the tools that were developed as part of this process which can then be applied to their own institutions. Alternatively participants may consider whether investing in them is an appropriate strategy to support staff who work with first year students.
