UKAT, the United Kingdom Advising and Tutoring association, is a learned society of professional practitioners and researchers interested in advancing the scholarship and practice of student advising and personal tutoring in Higher Education in the UK. We advance the field through our conferences, symposia, workshops, support for original research, peer-reviewed academic publications, accreditation of practice, professional courses, and resources.
The webinar focuses on a study of Chinese students in UK HE and the relationships that they have with their personal tutors. It explores the experiences of the relationships between Chinese students at a post-1992 UK university and their personal tutors.
Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA) was chosen to explore the lived experiences of the students and their personal tutors in depth. Ten Chinese students were interviewed (most twice) using semi-structured interviews. In addition, three personal tutors, one Chinese tutor in a Chinese university and one international administrator were interviewed. The themes considered in this webinar are the nature of the personal tutoring relationship, expectations of the relationship, barriers to the relationship, other supportive relationships, experiences of culture, and tutor and tutee emotions.Read more...
