The Academic Support and Tutoring Services department held its semi-annual Tutor Training on August 19 & 20. Our Tutor Training is accredited by the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA) and provides an important opportunity for our tutors to learn and refresh skills in assisting GRCC students across many different content areas.
The first day of training was for our new tutors and included such topics as Collaborative Learning Strategies, Case Studies in Campus Resources, and Common Tutoring Scenarios. On the second day of training, we added our returning tutors to the group and provided sessions on Tutoring Adult Learners, Title IX updates, and a review of our CRLA Level 1 tutoring topics. The afternoon concluded with content-specific training which ranges from participating in a guest speaker’s presentation on Gamification to learning how to use a new online scheduling tool. Over the two days, tutors have an opportunity to interact with students and staff from across the College, and build relationships with their fellow tutors.
