12 May 2014

UCL Arena Teaching Learning Conference 2014

Dr Simon Banks, UCL Chemistry, will use this UCL Arena Exchange seminar to discuss the problems he has identified in the system of personal tutoring and present his solutions.

Specifically, he will look at how two core aspects of personal tutoring – attendance monitoring and pastoral care – can become more closely aligned.

As well as drawing on his own personal experiences of the system, he will present the methods currently employed by the Chemistry department.
