That’s an interesting question. I guess how you figure your ratio would
depend on how you define “1” tutor: is it ...

*  each individual tutor, regardless of how many hours they work,

*  or would it be overall tutorial time divided by the number of hours an
employee has to work in order to be ‘full-time’ at your institution;

* or, do you count them as “instructional hours” (which I know are counted
differently for purposes of benefits, etc.)????

Geez, I just confused myself.

What definition would make sense? What kind of ratio would be most helpful?

>> Dear Colleagues,
>>
>> The PA/NJ chapter of the CRLA is hosting a free webinar on Friday,
>> April 10,, 2015 at 12:30pm (EST). This year we are excited that
>> Cynthia Carroll from the University of North Texas Health Science
>> Center will speak about Using Cognitive Psychology Techniques with
>> Students in the Academic Support Meeting. Cynthia is a licensed
>> professional counselor with experience ranging from the clinical
>> setting to the educational setting. She currently works at the UNT
>> Health Science Center counseling students who are entering into
>> various medical fields. She has worked with these students for over
>> five years now, and as a result has gained extensive knowledge in how
>> to handle difficult emotions, especially anxiety and stress. She is
>> excited about this opportunity to share what she has learned over the
>>years, to help you, to help others through you, and to learn from you as
>>well.
>> Since academic support specialists are on the front lines of student
>> support, they are often the first to see students struggling with
>> anxiety or depressed mood, possibly because of an emotional or
>> personal issue. It is believed that by utilizing the methods of
>> Cognitive Psychology, learning specialists can improve student
>> support, academic progress, and retention, and help reduce the need for
>>immediate, traditional therapy.
>>
>> During the webinar, Cynthia will demonstrate the importance of
>> addressing the personal (cognitive and emotional) components of a
>> student's success and how to provide students with initial cognitive
>> information that can sometimes defer an immediate referral to the
>> counseling center.  With this information, participants will be able
>> to promote better academic functioning by training students on the
>> topic of how to cope with intrusive cognitions. After this webinar,
>> academic support professionals will be equipped with knowledge to
>> positively influence students regarding personal, and consequently,
>>academic concerns.
>>
>> To sign up for the webinar, please visit
>> http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0b49a8af2eaa8-2015. We are limited
>> to
>> 100 log-ins for Adobe Connect, so we highly encourage those at the
>> same institution to gather in one space to watch the webinar if at all
>>possible.
>>
>> The day before the webinar, you will receive an email from me with the
>> link you need to access the Adobe Connect space.
