New course for students interested in tutoring

Academic Support Programs is piloting a new course for students interested in tutoring in higher education. The class is designed for anyone interested in peer-to-peer learning, both in theory and in practice. Students that might be interested include those currently working in a learning center or with peers, interested in doing so in the future, or simply interested in working in education more broadly.

Education 401: Tutoring in Higher Education

Are you interested in teaching and tutoring? Are you interested in working at a campus learning center or discovering why peer-to-peer tutoring is a powerful educational model?

This seminar explores the theory and practice of peer tutoring at the university. In addition to research addressing learning, tutoring and teaching, we will consider how to nurture inclusive learning spaces committed to educational equity.

In addition to weekly reflections, major assignments will include a tutoring demonstration and learning center ethnography.

The class will meet Wednesdays from 4pm-5:20pm in Mary Gates Hall Room 242

2 credit credits (credit/no credit)
