Getting Personal: Conceptualising and Understanding Personal Tutoring

Thursday, 21 June 2018

The SRHE Student Experience network, and Raising Awareness Raising Aspiration (RARA) a project between the University Sheffield, Kings College London, and the University of Portsmouth have joined together for a one-day conference reflecting on Personal Tutoring.

The RARA project is designed to explore specifically the way in which personal tutoring can be conceptualised and delivered with a view to help support the closure of attainment gaps for students from BME and lower socio-economic backgrounds.

The day will feature a range of talks including empirical research and evaluation from the RARA project, as well as think pieces and conceptual papers on themes related to and aligned with personal tutoring. Some of these themes include the role of personal tutoring in student transitions, mental health, mentoring, pastoral support and employability.

The day will also include contributions from other projects funded under the Office for Students Addressing Barriers to Student Success (ABSS) funding, such as the Changing Mindsets project.

The day will be facilitated by Samuel Dent, University of Sheffield, including contributions from:

  • ·         Dr. Emma Broglia, Post-Doctoral Research Associate, The University of Sheffield
  • ·         Dr Kay Guccione, Mentoring & Coaching Consultant, The University of Sheffield
  • ·         Dr Camille Kandiko Howson, Senior Lecturer in Higher Education & Academic Head of Student Engagement, Kings College London
  • ·         Dr. Alison Stenton, Senior Tutor, Green Templeton College, Oxford
  • ·         Dr Jessica Gagnon, Senior Research Fellow, The University of Portsmouth
  • ·         Arif Mahmud, Senior Research Associate, The University of Portsmouth
