BACKGROUND As educators of large first year cohorts, we know that regular attendance and participation in all aspects of University life is the first step to a successful University career. Students who ask questions, regularly seek clarification, build relationships with peers and teaching staff, are more likely to achieve a passing grade in the topic. These anecdotal statements are supported by research in the field which suggests that positive engagement with both the academic and social aspects of University life is an important predictor of student success and retention (Larmar & Ingamells, 2010; Lowe & Cook, 2003; Nelson, Quinn, Marrington, & Clarke, 2012).
