Academic advising has the potential to transform the student learning experience, scaffolding student success through promoting peer learning cohorts, building affiliation and belonging, empowering students to be autonomous learners and providing a reflective space to navigate key themes to aid personal and professional development. Middlesex has a long-established history of personal tutoring and this conference provides the opportunity to focus on the good practice from learnings whilst situating the approach firmly within the academic sphere as ‘Academic Advising’. In its 21st year, the Annual Learning and Teaching Conference will provide the opportunity to enthuse, inspire, discuss and debate pedagogy to enhance advising, showcasing best practice and scholarship from across the sector. The conference will launch the Advising Framework, principles and support materials to build upon foundations for inclusive advising focusing on enhancement for all.
