UKAT Conference: Transition, Persistence and Resilience: Academic Advising for Success, University of Plymouth, 10-12 April
UKAT (UK Advising and Tutoring) are excited to offer their fourth Annual Conference, that will provide an opportunity to explore new research, innovative practice and contemporary discussion about student support through advising and tutoring. We recognize that for many students the barriers to success (difficulty in transitioning, lack of confidence, time and resource poverty) can outweigh the wealth of opportunities and advantages afforded by the university experience. Students' development of persistence and resilience can be enhanced by a support network of peers, professional support staff, personal tutors and academic advisers, and this conference will bring together members of these groups to share good practice, skills and knowledge.
The conference themes will focus specifically on the impact student support systems have on the student experience, particularly with reference to the following themes:-
Transitioning students: support/activities and evaluation;
Building student resilience;
Academic advising for success.
We are delighted to be able to welcome our two keynote speakers, Oscar van den Wijngaard of the University of Maastricht and Ryan Scheckel of Texas Tech University.
