This announcement is in response to the number of LRNASSTERS who have
expressed an interest in on line tutoring.

Corrine Johnson, a leader for CRLA's Tutoring SIG, will be presenting at the
next Winter Institute in the Phoenix area, January 02-06, 2001.  Her
presentation is one of a series that will be surveying the use of technology
by learning support centers in tutoring, math, study skills, writing,  basic
skills, on line course development and support, and learning center

In addition to Corrine Johnson (Mesa State College) on online tutoring, the
Institute will feature  Lucy MacDonald (Chemeketa College) on study skills,
David Caverly (Southwest Texas University) on basic skills, Brad Hughes
(University of Wisconsin/Madison) on writing, Gideon Weinstein (USMA/West
Point) on math, Ray Ganey (Cochise College) and Frank Christ (University of
Arizona) on online course development and support.

The keynoter is Alan Levine (Maricopa County Community College District
technologist), recognized internationally for his expertise on technology in
higher education.
