Thank you to Michal Coffey and Jennifer Lee from Virginia Commonwealth University for their project
“The Transfer of Tutoring and SI Leadership Skills to Future Employment and Graduate School.”
Exit interviews are standard practice at the Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) Campus Learning Center to see what students have learned as tutors and SI Leaders as well as how they will transfer those skills to a future job or graduate school. To date no formal research has been conducted on how these skills impact their employees post-graduation. The VCU team used the TRPP Innovation Award to formally survey former tutors and SI Leaders; establish an alumni database; provide honoraria for alumni speakers and organize networking events for current staff and alumni. The primary skills to be tracked included public speaking, leadership skills, independent problem-solving, teamwork and applied critical thinking.
