Session Outline

The session will be delivered from 4 perspectives:

• A Personal Tutor

• A Professional Servies Manager

• A student mentor

• A personal tutee.

The Academic and Digital Skills team supports students through a variety of synchronous and asynchronous activities. While there is good take-up of the services, many students still report that they are unaware of the many resources that could potentially be instrumental in their academic success. This workshop will highlight a pilot project involving a collaboration between a personal tutor, a professional services manager, a student mentor and a personal tutee to highlight how embedding collaborative practices can highlight opportunities and signpost events to students. In an age where there appears to be too much information, simple practices and a personal touch can go a long way in identifying pathways to students at the time of their need.

This session addresses the following competencies of the UKAT Professional Framework for Advising and Tutoring
I6 - Campus and community resources that support student success
R7 - Collaborate effectively with campus services to provide support to students
