In his cookbook ‘Everyday Asian’ (2011) chef Bill Granger asks the perfectly reasonable question ‘Does the world need another recipe for a green chicken curry?’ He then proceeds to include one. Anyone who has eaten curry knows that not all green chicken curries are equal and when you find a good one, it’s special. Similarly, people in universities might be tempted to assume that all tertiary enabling and bridging courses are doing the same thing and that perhaps the world doesn’t need another one? However, in the ACIKE ‘Preparation for Tertiary Success’ (PTS) course we think we have a recipe for enabling education that is very special. This is what our students are telling us too, through our increasingly strong data story and through their own stories of transformation. So what are the key ingredients of ACIKE’s ‘Preparation for Tertiary Success’ course?
