Session Outline

This workshop will explore the value of reflection in personal tutoring. It will draw on the experience of the facilitators in co-designing with students tools for reflection in personal tutor meetings. Participants will be given the opportunity to design their own resources in small groups to facilitate reflection for personal tutoring in their own institutional contexts. The group will be encouraged to reflect as participants on the value of student reflection in promoting student wellbeing and employability and enhancing student learning experiences.
