Many academic and support staff across Teesside University are involved in personal tutoring and/or advising our students. As many of you know, Teesside University has a Personal Tutoring Code of Practice which was introduced in September 2018. The purpose of this Code was to ensure that there was a consistent approach to Personal Tutoring across the University. Teesside University has a long history of excellent practices around Personal Tutoring and these helped to inform and shape the development of the Code of Practice. Subsequent to the implementation of this Code excellent practices have continued to grow and develop.
There is an opportunity for colleagues at Teesside to showcase all the good work that they are doing in the area of Personal Tutoring and Advising in a new book entitled:
The Higher Education Personal Tutor’s and Advisor’s Companion: Translating theory into practice to improve student success.
The first of its kind in UK higher education personal tutoring and advising, this book will constitute a unique collection of case studies curated by experts. It will build upon the success of Effective Personal Tutoring in Higher Education (2018) and advance this underdeveloped field through the sharing of effective practice.
The editors (Dave Lochtie, Andy Stork and Ben Walker) are seeking contributions on a range of themes and from a wide variety of HE institutions. If you share a passion for personal tutoring and advising and have a successful story to tell, they would love you to be part of this exciting new publication.
UK Advising and Tutoring (UKAT) are excited to announce a call for contributions for this new book and are co-publishing and supporting its development. Although this is an independent publication and not a UKAT-led work, it aligns with UKAT’s charitable mission to enhance personal tutoring and advisory practices.
For full details of how to contribute, please visit the Call for Contributions page. The Call for Contributions closes on 1st October 2020.
