They will also act as key professional development for those undertaking tutoring and advising roles. Facilitated by various key professionals associated with UKAT and collaborative in nature, the webinars will cover important issues for academic advising.

Tutoring Matters 1
The UKAT Research Committee Webinar
Thursday 17 January 2019  2.00-3.30pm
The first UKAT Research Webinar will take place on Thursday 17th January 2019 from 2-3.30pm GMT.  We would like as many UKAT members and their colleagues to join us as we discuss how to ensure that tutoring and advising practice is evidence-informed.  Whether you have engaged in the scholarship of advising and tutoring before or are a complete newcomer and want to find out about what's been published in the tutoring space and the projects we are supporting, please do sign up.  You will have the opportunity to hear from participants in the UKAT research mentoring programme, about the work NACADA (The Global Community for Academic Advising) and to discuss the "gaps" in the literature and what we can do to address them. 

To book a place on this webinar please use the following Eventbrite link.
