Suggested Ways of Supporting Personal and Professional Development
We suggest that in a tutorial early in the year, you
ask your tutees to select 1-3 areas to develop and to write a plan for
this in the PPD System by the next tutorial. You can let them know that there is help
available to them with writing plans on this website.
the next tutorial, you may wish to go through the plan(s) with them to
ensure that they are realistic, clear and easy to follow. You should
also ask them how they are progressing with implementing their plan and what they expect to have achieved by the time you next meet.
to check with them regularly how they are progressing, focusing on concrete evidence emerging from their engagement with the development agenda. You may wish to ask whether they are keeping a learning journal or blog in MyPortfolio to help
them reflect on their personal and professional development.
When your tutee tells you they have made significant progress or completed their plan, you should ask whether they have updated evidence of their personal and professional development in the PPD System. Advice on writing persuasive evidence is available from this website. You may wish to go through their evidence with them, and advise appropriately to help them improve its validity and completeness.
Towards the end of the year you should go through their development in the PPD System with them. You may wish to ask them why they think they are good at some areas and need to develop others. This can alternatively be done towards the beginning of the academic year, before they select areas to develop.
