Formatted Abstract/Summary
The University of Southern Queensland was recently awarded $4.4 million to create a pathway for Indigenous and non-Indigenous incarcerated students into higher education. Depending on the experience and skills of the students, they can enter the pathway through a Certificate I, II or III before entering into a Tertiary Preparation Program, one-year Diploma of Arts or three-year Bachelor of General Studies program. All of these programs will be delivered on a version of Moodle, designed to operate without the internet, and eBook readers. Approaching release, students will be prepared for either employment or further study through specially designed programs aimed at easing the transition from incarceration. This paper will outline the plans for this ambitious project, while considering the opportunities and challenges it will entail.
