UK Advising and Tutoring Annual Conference
UKAT are excited to announce that registration for their 2021 online conference is now open!
The theme of the conference is: Opportunity for All: Personal Tutoring and Inclusion in Higher Education. This online conference focuses on developing students as independent self-regulating learners. The event will have a conversational focus and will consider how personal tutoring enables the addressing of disparities in engagement, progression and degree outcomes by students from groups underrepresented in HE and/or with protected characteristics. Through discussion and practice sharing, we will identify ways in which this fundamental component of HE can make higher education more inclusive of diverse student populations and enhance outcomes for all students.
Additionally, it will look at how personal tutoring can combine with peer learning, academic study skills development, and mentoring and coaching to build confidence and resilience, and enhance student success academically and professionally.
They have some exciting sessions lined up in addition to their keynote speakers, Dr Celia Greenway and Diane Nutt.
Recognising the financial challenges affecting the higher education sector this year, to make this conference as accessible to as many people as possible, they are offering a buy one, get one free discount on delegate registrations. When you register as a delegate for the conference, you will be able to register an additional delegate to attend free of charge.
We look forward to seeing you at the conference!
