Abstract

The aim of this research paper was to deepen our understanding of the professional development of postgraduates who teach (tutors). Using arts-based methods, we asked postgraduate tutors and senior staff how they saw tutors' roles and development needs. We found that both tutors and senior staff were concerned about a lack of community, the administrative burden, the importance of enjoyment, how tutoring should be recognised and valued and the question of training versus development. We make use of a framework borrowed form gerontological nursing for addressing these issues in practice.
