Using a coaching approach to help facilitate the personal tutoring conversation.
What staff need(s) will the workshop meet?
- How can I be more effective in my role as a PT or PAT?
- Individual meetings with students is an important element of my role as a PT or PAT, but we never have much time. How can I make the most of the time?
- How can I improve my skills of getting to the heart of the issues students bring to me as PT/PAT?
- How can I make sure that my response is really appropriate to their concerns and needs? Students need to take some personal responsibility for addressing blocks and challenges within their study at university.
- How can I quickly engage students in responding actively to issues?
