Personal Tutor Project – your input needed

March 3rd, 2023

A new Personal Tutor Project aims to challenge the current personal tutoring paradigm and more strategically match staff skillsets to student needs.

The project, led by University Senior Tutor Professor Andy Fisher, is progressing in collaboration with Getting in Shape and the UX Research Team, and will aim to enhance existing areas of excellence in this field.

The team aims to pilot a new tutoring approach in a number of schools/departments from September. The aim of the approach is to challenge the default position that all academic staff are assigned tutees, allowing us to better match skill with need and improve the experience of both staff and students.

To inform evidence-based changes, the project is seeking input from academic staff, students and Professional Services colleagues, as well as consulting other institutions.

If you are able to spare five minutes, please do complete our staff questionnaire.
