With the new academic year upon us soon, please see below a video on how to record a meeting with your tutee. You will need to provide a login to view the video if off-campus.
The University ePortfolio system was rolled out for Stage 1 Personal Tutoring during the last academic year. It has been mandatory to record meetings that you are having with your tutees in line with the Personal Tutoring Framework. For Stage 1 students, this is two meetings in the first Semester, one of which should be within the first 4 weeks of the student’s arrival at University.
Please see this video to find out how to meet this University requirement.
The rollout moves on to Stage 2 and PGT students. Again, the use of ePortfolio should be in line with the Personal Tutoring Framework, and it says that the offer of tutorial contact should be made at least once a semester.
Currently, offers of meetings can be made through meeting slots and the record meeting functionality. The development will be working on improving the “offer” functionality and we hope this to be in place before the start of the academic year.
There are two ways that students can cancel the slot they have previously booked on. The cancellation has to be outside the ‘no amendment” time set when creating the meeting slots.
The two methods are:
1) In the “My Calendar” link on the homepage, any booked meetings show up in a purple colour. Students can click on their booking to cancel (they are asked for a reason for this cancellation).
2) They can click on their tutor’s image to view a tab that has the meeting slots the tutor had offered.
