To what extent does Exeter’s new e-PDP tool support the quality of tutor-tutee interactions in the context of personal tutorials?
At Exeter we have just launched a new ePDP tool, based on our student record system and linked to the students transcripts. The students ePDP can be viewed online by their personal tutor in preparation for personal tutorials and to date around 2,000 students have activated their ePDP records. For our part in the NTFS project, we are aiming to conduct an evaluation of this resource, (i) as a means of helping students prepare for tutorials, and (ii) as an ongoing record of their achievement, reflection and planning.
