About this product
- DescriptionA great deal has changed since the last book on personal tutoring in higher education appeared a decade ago. Mass higher education and resource constraints have put pressures on the traditional models of academic support just when increased student numbers and greater diversity has made the need for one-to-one and small group learning more urgent. Personal Tutoring in Higher Education examines the pressures on traditional models of personal tutoring and sets this against the benefits of greater interaction and engagement to support students as they make the transition into higher education and progress through it successfully. The contributors offer alternative ways of conceptualising personal tutoring and describe new and effective ways of implementing appropriate support systems at strategic and practical levels. And they discuss the implications for training, development and support needs of university staff in this changing environment. The book is essential reading for all managers and tutors in higher education.
