The Higher Education Personal Tutor’s and Advisor’s Companion: Translating Theory into Practice to Improve Student Success
This text provides a comprehensive collection of case studies in contemporary UK Higher Education Personal Tutoring and Academic Advising. Building on ‘Effective Personal Tutoring in Higher Education’ (2018), with contributions from 50 practitioners across UK HE, it examines the key themes, theories and concepts relevant to personal tutoring and translates these into real-world practice on how student learning and outcomes can be improved.
Effective Personal Tutoring In Higher Education
Drawing on the transferable principles of my earlier book, this text illustrates and discusses their applicability to the higher education sector where personal tutoring is increasingly important. It is the first UK monograph on the topic in twelve years, promoting a more evidence-based approach to practice and situating advising and tutoring within the wider, international literature on student retention and success.
Becoming an Outstanding Personal Tutor
Published in October 2015, this book aims to define what effective personal tutoring is, as well as explain and demonstrate how to carry out the role effectively (through the context of further education). It draws on empirical evidence and desk-based research. Edited by Sue Wallace (Emeritus Professor of Education at Nottingham Trent University).
