Recording Personal Academic Tutor meetings

Recording Personal Academic Tutor meetings

The Personal Academic Tutor
Personal Academic Tutors are asked to keep a brief record of meetings by annotating the tutee records via the staff SOLE pages.  This may just be a note that the meeting has taken place and that the tutee attended.  However there is space to record key points discussed and proposed actions, as well as any issues which may have arisen.  These records would obviously be useful as a reference point for future meetings and may be helpful towards a future academic reference.  It is possible to mark notes of a meeting as sensitive and therefore only accessible to you.  Please note that you cannot currently edit entries once you have loaded them onto the SOLE pages, though Registry can remove data entered in error.

The Personal Academic Tutee
The personal academic tutee is strongly encouraged to prepare for personal academic tutorial meetings, as requested by the Personal Academic Tutor, and to keep a record of the meetings.  It would be helpful if, as a prompt, tutors asked tutees to share and agree these records with them.  The record could take a number of forms.  If the meeting is run as a small group workshop it may consist largely of notes made during the session.  Some Institutes already have tutorial record sheets as part of their formative assessment process and others may be developing them as part of the embedding of personal academic tutorials in their student support strategy.  The University’s Personal Learning System, PebblePad, lends itself to use for the collation of material for recording and reflecting on feedback, plans and achievements; personal academic tutorial notes would fit easily within this.
