Tuesday 21st July 2020Tuesday 21st July 2020

A collaborative event hosted by UKAT and PebblePad

About the webinar

Purposeful personal tutoring is a proactive, intentionally structured process which focuses on student growth and development. With UK universities continuing to adapt to a post-COVID world, and with the Higher Education sector looking ahead to a new academic year, it can come as little surprise that personal tutoring is featuring high on the priority list of many institutions. Offering an effective way to stay in touch with students working remotely, and a purposeful and structured means of helping students grow and flourish, personal tutoring can help students differentiate themselves in a highly competitive job market. This event will explore the benefits of supporting and encouraging students to tell their story effectively and demonstrate how flipped approaches to personal tutoring, supported by eportfolio, can make a significant difference to both student and institutional outcomes.
