Hi Sarah,

I initiated a discussion on this topic in 2017. I went back into the
LRNASST archive and found you some resources from that conversation.

Below is a reply and some attachments Ira Fabri set at the time. (I hope
you don't mind me sharing this, Ira!)

Also at the time, Stacey Blackwell was collecting benchmarking information
on this topic via Qualtrics survey. I received the report from her
directly, but no longer have access to it, because it would be in my former
institution's email.

Stacey, if you're not too busy, would you be willing to share your results
from that survey to the list again?

P.S. Since this is a recurring question, if anyone out there wants to
conduct a study and write a journal article about it, it seems there would
be an audience.... I know I would read it! Just putting that out there! 😁

Hi All.

I saved some answers that were given to a similar question a while ago (see
attached Word document). I also ask some questions in September that can
help with this (see Excel file). The excel file is organized by institution
and not by question. That might make it a bit difficult to read at first. I
apologize but I have not had the time, yet, to reorganize it.

I hope these two documents can help and I would be very interested in other
colleagues' insights.

Best,

Ira

Hi Rebecca,

We've actually considered this question lately as well while preparing our
strategic three-year budget.  Currently, we have one program manager
supervising 218 study group facilitators and one program manager
supervising 60 tutors and 12 mentors.  These programs do share one
administrative assistant as well.   Obviously, this is far from ideal or a
best practice and we are hoping to provide the evidence needed to convince
our Dean's Office to grant our request for additional staff.

Thanks!

Joe

Hi everyone,

What have you found in your experience, or in the literature, to be an
ideal staff to tutor ratio for supervision and training?  We are growing
our team and want to follow best practices.

Applies for cross-posting.  Thanks in advance!
