Daniel R. Sanford, Ph.D. is the director of the Center for Teaching and Learning at Boise State University. He is the author of The Rowman & Littlefield Guide for Peer Tutors, and co-author of The Rowman & Littlefield Guide to Learning Center Administration: Leading Peer Tutoring Programs in Higher Education.
The core outcome of our job as learning center administrators is to give peer educators the conditions to succeed in engaging students as learners, and the most important venue that we have for accomplishing this goal is through tutor training. Tutor training programs have the potential not only to provide peer educators with prerequisite concepts but to guide students in their growth as educators and draw them into the educational mission of the institutions we serve. In order to accomplish this, we need to approach tutors as the advanced students and gifted educators they are, challenging them with intellectually engaging ideas and modeling the pedagogies that we hope to see them use in the center. In this webinar, we’ll explore approaches to tutor training that draws on the robust scholarship of teaching and learning to motivate peer educators towards deeper engagement with the center, growth as practitioners, and excellence in their work with learners.
