New Personal Development Tutoring webinars - Trimester 2

Published: 2 January 2020 at 16:45

Following positive feedback from Personal Development Tutors on the usefulness of training on PDT materials and suggested sessions, we have organised a series of refresher training sessions for trimester 2.

These hour long Zoom webinars recap PDT group sessions 1 through to 6 and include contributions from Faculty PDT Community Leads to talk about how PDT has worked in their faculties.

They have been scheduled to provide a ‘just in time’ reminder for Personal Development Tutors with tutees at level 4, and take place just before the recommended teaching week for each PDT session.  

The webinar series also includes a range of other topics that Personal Development Tutors might find interesting including the use of TOPdesk, conversations with students (from a Student Advice Service perspective), and PDT at level 5 (which sets the scene for the next phase of delivery).

The first session covers PDT in Welcome Week, so is perfect for anyone needing a quick refresher before delivering session 1 to January starters.  A full list of training topics and dates is available here.

To book your place at any, or all, or these sessions, please go to Business World and search the course catalogue for ‘TUTOR’, which will return the full training schedule for the ‘Talking about Tutoring’ webinar series.   

If you are unable to attend the live webinars, they will be recorded and available to view on the PDT Hub on Canvas where all of the resources for trimester 2 may also be found.
