Abstract

The study programme of Psychology at Aalborg University receives 150 new students every year. But how to best support their learning environment and study environment? According to Tinto (1993), student retention and dropout must be understood as a question related to the culture of the educational institution and its ability to support the social and academic integration of students. According to Tinto, psychosocial integration and wellbeing are strongly related to a supportive culture of lecturers with respect to the academic integration. Starting from a PBL-pedagogical, Bildung and profession perspective, this paper more specifically raises the question: how can the lecturers and organizers of higher learning activities support the social and academic integration of first year psychology students?
