Abstract

About the book:
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.

This book examines the pressures on traditional models of personal tutoring and sets this against the benefits of greater interaction and engagement to support students. The contributors offer alternative ways of conceptualising personal tutoring and describe effective new ways of implementing appropriate support systems at strategic and practical levels, and discuss the implications for training, development and support needs of university staff.
