Academic Support

Thomas, L. and Hixenbaugh, P.   (2006) Personal Tutoring in Higher Education, London: Trentham Books Personal Tutoring in Higher Education looks at 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. They discuss the implications for training, development and support needs of university staff in this changing environment.
