Buffet or Small Plates? How Do Your Tutors Consume their Training? With
Lindy Coleman, VP-NCLCA
Friday the 13th (MARCH, 2020) at 1pm Eastern.
Are you a proud member of the Clean Plate Club? Happily eating what is placed in front of you, at designated meal times? Or do you prefer the tapas style—selecting among a variety of small portions
to create a customized meal? Which
description best fits your tutor training? Do you train your tutors at a training retreat, in a class, throughout the semester, or in some other format? How did you choose your method? Does it support your tutors in becoming CRLA certified?
And, most importantly, does your method provide hearty, satisfying, and well-balanced training for your tutors?
Join Lindy from the Center for Student Learning at the College of Charleston for a discussion of training methods and modalities. We’ll discuss what’s working for you, what’s
not, and what could be better—so come and get it while it’s hot!
• Choose the description that best fits their current tutor training method, and identify the pros and cons of their current program;
• Discover the methods of their colleagues, and ask questions to determine if implementing that method might benefit their own program. Questions may include: How/When do you do it? How well does it work? What challenges does it present?
• Learn how the delivery of tutor training in the Center for Student Learning at the College of Charleston has evolved from 1974-2019, and why the current method supports the CSL’s mission;
• Develop a new recipe for tutor training in their center. Use the following to create a personalized recipe card:
• Ingredients (what do you want your tutors to know/what skills do you want them to acquire/develop/improve?)
• Reservations or walk-in (when and how often will you offer training?)
• Courses or Buffet (how will you provide/offer/serve/deliver training?)
• Yelp review (How will you assess the effectiveness of training?)
