New service: Tutxoring!

I’m really excited to launch a new and unique service: tutxoring!

For most things you need to learn, there are many experts on the subject from whom you can learn, and a vast range of learning materials: courses, textbooks, videos, communities. For most topics, there’s an agreed curriculum, a set of things that most experts agree you need to know. But for the most difficult, the most challenging, and the most ground-breaking learning, there’s almost nothing to help you. That’s where tutxoring comes in.

The model comes from the later stages of PhD supervision, or some forms of an Oxbridge tutorial. While the supervisor or tutor usually starts with a better understanding than the student, good students will, by the end, be among the world experts in the specific area they’re working in, and the role of the supervisor or tutor becomes much more of a guide than a direct teacher.

This is just to whet your appetite: there are more details about what tutxoring is on my website, as well as an even longer discussion about tutxoring, how it works, and how I’m well placed to offer it.

Many thanks to everyone who provided early feedback on a sneak preview. You’ll see I’ve changed the name based on what you said. And a particular salute to the old guard who still have my blog in their RSS feed reader.

If you’re interested in tutxoring, want to find out more, or want to discuss how tutxoring can help you, do please get in touch.

And tell your friends!

Tutxor, online learning expert, project leader, data scientist, researcher, analyst, teacher, developer, educational technologist and manager. I particularly enjoy rapidly appraising new-to-me contexts, and mediating between highly technical specialisms and others, from ordinary users to senior management. After 20 years at the OU as an academic, I am now a self-employed consultant, building on my skills and experience in working with people, technology, data science, and artificial intelligence, in the education field and beyond.
