*Meetings: For 2016 Academic Year, Personal Tutors can use the Groups facility in MyAberdeen to organise their initial welcome and exam reflection meetings with tutees. You can also use MyAberdeen to schedule additional meetings with your tutees.

While face-to-face meetings are preferred, you may (particularly when you are off campus) also use Blackboard Collaborate as a ‘virtual meeting room’. Your tutees will need to have access to a webcam or mobile device. You could also ‘meet’ using Skype which is now available on University Staff PCs.

For further guidance, see our Preparing for Meetings pages.
