Connecting with tutees
This session explores a range of examples illustrating how personal connections have been built with and between tutees during the past year and will include presentations from some of this year’s Bristol Teaching Awards – Outstanding Personal Tutoring shortlist. Contributors include: Dr Peter Scott from the Department of Music - speaking about the positive (and occasionally negative) impact of university extra-curricular activities, particularly in relation to first year tutees. Dr James Norman from the Department of Civil Engineering - speaking about how tutorials offer many benefits to students, not least being our primary form of pastoral support. However, to ensure good student engagement with tutorials we believe that they need to be consistent, valuable and fun. To enable this to happen this year we created a 24 week plan and sent all tutors a weekly email with a ready made tutorial plan. Find out what was in the plan. What worked. What didn't. What we will be doing better next time. And how to design a snack that is scary in under a minute! Dr Joe Williams from the School of Geographical Sciences - speaking about some easy ways to foster a sense of community among postgraduate students. Joe will discuss his approach during Covid-19 restrictions and will outline how this will inform his tutorials now restrictions are starting to lift. Julian Kendell a Lecturer in Academic Development in the BILT Team and Ruth Day the Student Living Officer in the Students Union speak about a collaboration between the Student Union Sabbatical Officers and BILT, to develop online training resources that introduces academic personal tutors to the key aspects of the role and will help them in other important areas such being inclusive and supporting students wellbeing. Dr Julie Townsend and Dr Allison Fulford from the School of Anatomy - speaking about pastoral support for students on the Gateway Programme in Medicine, Dentistry and Veterinary Science, the widening participation course for clinical programmes. The first year, based in the School of Anatomy, enables dental, vet and medically-qualified Anatomy academic staff to support all three programmes locally. We will reflect upon the model of group and individual tutorials that aims to encourage peer-peer support, nurture study skills, support wellbeing, provide career mentorship and enable students to prepare for year 1 of the 5 year clinical courses.
