This is our first in-person conference for three years and we are deliberately setting out to offer a very conversational and interactive conference to make the most of being together again in-person.
The overarching theme for the conference is Personal Tutoring: Enhancing Outcomes for All Students. We are inviting contributions which consider how we engage students with personal tutoring, different approaches for diverse student cohorts, addressing attainment gaps, improving employability, and the acquisition of graduate attributes. We welcome a broad and innovative range of other perspectives on what Enhancing Outcomes for All Students might mean. We would like presenters to propose sessions based on topics which focus on the ways in which they believe that personal tutoring can help students address current and future challenges and achieve better outcomes for all students.
We have suggested some familiar session formats that proposers may wish to follow as well as some new ones. We are also open to proposers suggesting entirely new formats that we have not tried before but which makes the most of delegates being together in-person. And we’re doing the same with our keynote session which involves interactive theatre.
The Conference Committee will focus on proposals which address contemporary issues and practices in personal tutoring. Contributions based on experiences, effective practices, research studies or which promote discussion between delegates on hot topics are particularly welcomed, as are proposals which involve an element of co-creation with students.
The Call for Proposals is now closed. Proposers who have had proposals accepted can manage their submission using the Online Submission System.
