we have had success getting some teachers to do their "office hour" in our Center for Academic Success. We also had a Title III (institutional improvement) grant that included paid "faculty tutoring."  We tried "facilitated study groups" to try to encourage group work, which was a total flop - students didn't come  - but when it was simply general "faculty tutoring," students did and ended up working together anyway.

Greetings!

 

I am new to this listserv and am looking for advice.  This last year we
opened a new Learning Center here at our Tribal College (which has a
student population of about 240)  and have been very successful with
having lots of student participation.  I want to go to the next level of
having faculty come into the Learning Center more.  I have noticed that
whenever a teacher spends a little bit of time in here, invariably
students will get around to asking questions about the classes.  These
same students would not go to the faculty members' offices as it would
be too intimidating.  The problem is that I am having trouble convincing
faculty members of the importance of spending time in here with the
students.  We have been brainstorming different ways of 'extrinsic
motivation' as it seems that the intrinsic motivation is not working as
quickly as I hoped.  I wanted to write in a grant request for an
additional stipend for faculty to spend time in the learning center but
some of my colleagues don't think that is really appropriate extrinsic
motivation.  Does anyone have any suggestions on how to increase faculty
participation?
