About This Webinar

In this webinar, the speakers will explore the findings of a HEFCE funded project focussing on the contribution of personal tutoring to reducing the awarding gap for different groups of students.  The newly developed Manchester Metropolitan University Personal Tutoring Framework will be explained, with a particular focus on the distinction between designing and evaluating a personal tutoring system from the activity of personal tutoring itself.
