Special Issue Title: THE FUTURE OF ACADEMIC ADVISING AND PERSONAL TUTORING: THE IMPACT OF COVID-19 AROUND THE WORLD
Academic advising and personal tutoring around the world has been transformed by COVID-19. Students, staff, and institutions have recognised its importance more than ever before. The opportunities of digital technology have been embraced. Issues of equality, diversity and inclusion have been revealed. Research-informed practice and collaboration has supported higher education to adapt.
This special issue will consider the impact that COVID-19 has had on academic advising and tutoring: both the challenges and the opportunities. It will also explore the future of academic and personal tutoring as we emerge from the pandemic. The special issue will bring together articles from across the world to reflect on the challenges, opportunities, and innovation.
The special issue has been developed in collaboration between NACADA: The Global Community for Academic Advising and United Kingdom Advising and Tutoring (UKAT).
