Session Outline

Publications related to academic advising across institutional and international contexts reveal insights into the history and knowledge base of this emerging area of educational responsibility. To learn more about the trends in the scholarship of academic advising and personal, a research team conducted a content analysis to examine 16 years of peer-reviewed articles from 2002 through 2019 across multiple academic publications. The authors use a coding process to identify topics and research designs used in each study. This presentation will start with an overview of the full project, and then focus on the range of theoretical frameworks used in the literature, with particular attention to those studies addressing the personalisation of learning and student success. Results will inform the future of scholarship related to academic advising and personal tutoring in further and higher education.
