Blending ‘Live’ Sessions with Asynchronous Learning Activities

Not all learning activities you use in a ‘face-to-face’ environment work well for remote ‘live’ teaching.

Developing practice in Personal Academic Tutorials: coaching approaches to develop student autonomy and personalisation of learning

A personal tutoring session

In these development sessions we will look at how coaching approaches in PATs can support students to take more ownership of the learning process and to make connections between learning opportunities for themselves through a non-directive, supported conversation. This is not to say that students do not ever need advice; they sometimes do. But a coaching approach recognises that the individual is more able to take full responsibility for their learning, progress and aspirations than we sometimes recognise, and that through using coaching approaches we can support the student beyond the tutorial situation to be able to take responsibility for, and ownership of, the decisions they make about their learning process, journey and destination beyond university, which is more likely to result in better engagement with their studies. In this session we will explore the principles of coaching and give you opportunities to practice some of the coaching skills you might use in a PAT situation with your students, as well as opportunities to explore when coaching may or may not be the most appropriate tool to use.


Refining your use of Blackboard Collaborate to Support Assessment

Collaborate Logo
