For training our Academic Coaches, I use the same text (16 Weeks to College Success, Kendall Hunt) that we use in the course College Study Strategies and have also incorporated into some of our high stakes programs—nursing, physical therapy, and the Doctor of Nurse Practitioner.

 

The Academic Coaches can enroll in the College Study Strategy course for credit and work through the book and be part of the discussion board—or as paid training, work through the book and meet with me weekly to discuss how they are applying the strategies. The book integrates essential strategies week by week to the students’ existing courses so that the training and material is authentic. In weekly meetings, we discuss how they are using the strategies in their courses and how they would integrate the strategies into Academic Coaching sessions for students. This way Academic Coaches are also creating artifacts that they can show to students that show how they used and are using the strategies.

 

The second part of the training empowers the academic coaches to research additional strategies to add to the base-line of strategies they were already given in the first part of the training. Academic Coaches discuss these strategies with me and their fellow coaches and add them to a binder that we keep in the learning center for future use and reference.

 

Academic Coaches are also required to observe other coaching sessions and study group sessions—as well as shadow with me while I work with students.

 

Hope this helps.

Hi All,

 

I hope this email finds you doing well! I was wondering what types of training do you offer tutors. We are currently utilizing CRLA, but I am looking for something a little more cost efficient; and please tell me why you have chosen the form of training you are currently using. Lastly, what are you doing to promote tutoring on your campus? What has worked well for your tutors?

 

Thank you all!
