A recent case study by David Kennedy about personal tutoring in the School of Medical Sciences and its impact on student satisfaction.
Dr David Kennedy of the School of Medical Education recently shared his work on personal tutoring and academic mentorship via the LTDS blog. The case study details what changes were made, and shows the massive increase in student satisfaction that resulted.
“As a School, we had a desire to improve academic and professional development, as well as pastoral support, for all of our students to enable them to achieve their true potential and support their transition to the workplace.”
David Kennedy, SME
This case study will be of interest to anyone who is interested in mentoring and pastoral support, and student experience.
