The conference theme presents FYE scholars and practitioners with the opportunity for critical reflection on their work, at both an institutional and individual level. Is our work making a difference to the lives of our students? Too many students are falling out of the higher education system for reasons which might have been wholly preventable. It is critical that we, as South Africa’s FYE scholars and practitioners, begin to develop and hone our skills to recognise this and to know how to respond effectively to the complex needs of our students.
