Academic Advisers: review and recommendations

Colleagues are invited to attend the Learning and Teaching Network session ‘Academic Advisers: review and recommendations’ taking place on Wednesday 18 October 2017, 13.15-14.30 in Cornwallis North West Seminar Room 6.

The session will be presented by Dr Alexander Hensby, Research Assistant, School of Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research and Dr Louise Naylor, Director of Unit for Enhancement of Learning and Teaching.

The Academic Adviser system at Kent was first implemented in 2012 to all first-year students and then rolled out to all undergraduates from 2014-15 academic year. The system has been evaluated as part of the Student Success Project and overall, the report endorses the retention of the Academic Adviser system for its contribution to the delivery of undergraduate tuition and support, in the context of expanding cohort size, rising tuition fees and the increasing diversification of the student body.

In this session, a summary of the review and recommendations for improving the implementation of the Academic Adviser system will be presented to ensure that all undergraduates can benefit from the one-to-one support, subject-specific guidance and personal representation provided by Academic Advisers.
