Abstract

Engagement in education whilst incarcerated is recognised as a pathway to rehabilitation and reducing recidivism. However, the study experience of incarcerated students is reported as being dehumanising. This emerging initiative aims to develop “fit for purpose” academic skills videos to reflect minority cohorts instead of repurposing existing support for this offline context. These resources will be mindful of the characteristics of incarcerated cohorts who may be keen to learn but may have low literacy levels, learning difficulties and disabilities. Reflective of the disproportionate numbers in incarceration, the resources will incorporate First Nations perspectives through co-design. This initiative is grounded in transition pedagogy. Students are anticipated to feel more supported as these resources will build academic skills, humanise study while incarcerated, and improve the transition to study post incarceration
