From: UKAT - United Kingdom Advising and Tutoring, Allied to NACADA [mailto:UKAT@JISCMAIL.AC.UK] On Behalf Of Emily Foster Sent: 17 November 2015 09:06 To: UKAT@JISCMAIL.AC.UK Subject: Update UKAT Conference
Full conference schedule will be released in early January 2016
In the changing landscape of the HE and FE sector, many new roles are appearing to support and advise our students. The guiding roles of academic faculty and central services are also being re-defined and explored. UKAT's first autumn conference aims to explore the current trends and methods of student advice, support and guidance, consider the broader context of student success, attainment and retention, and promote the sharing of experiences and innovative practice.
United Kingdom Advising and Tutoring is a professional body of practitioners and researchers interested in all aspects of advising and personal tutoring in FE and HE in the UK. UKAT recognises that effective personal tutoring and academic advising is at the core of student success, and aspires to lead the development and dissemination of innovative theory, research, and practice of student advising and tutoring in the UK and beyond.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused by the change of dates, and hope you are able to join us for our launch event in March 2016.
Emily Foster UKAT Communications Co-Coordinator
