Coming Soon - The Higher Education Personal Tutor’s and Advisor’s Companion: Translating theory into practice to improve student success
This text will provide a comprehensive collection of case studies in contemporary UK Higher Education Personal Tutoring and Academic Advising.
Practitioners from across the sector will translate the key themes, theories and concepts of the highly regarded Effective Personal Tutoring in Higher Education (2018), as well as additional areas of personal tutoring and academic advising, into real-world practice through case study narratives about how they have improved student learning and outcomes. How these have been implemented will be explored through the insights they have gained from the experience.
This text will build upon the editors’ 2018 book through real-world case studies which seek to support personal tutors and academic advisors. The aim is for practitioners to learn from each other, gain insights and help develop innovative ideas. The case studies are stories of practice written in an easily accessible style which help the reader to feel part of a community of learning. The editors will pose critical thinking activities to help the reader reflect on how the learning can be translated into their own context.
The book is scheduled for release on 1 March 2022. UKAT members can pre-order a copy for £14.99 (+ £3.50 postage and packing), a saving of 25% on the publisher's list price.
