Abstract

This paper describes an innovative academic support program known as the Systematic Integrated Learning Adviser (SILA) program. The preliminary findings from the initial evaluation of the pilot program are discussed and a number of successes and challenges are identified. This study highlights possibilities for improved outcomes for both students and teaching staff when an integrated and embedded approach to the provision of learning support is undertaken in a systematic manner.
