A Training Guide for College Tutors and Peer Educators by Sally A. Lipsky
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A Training Guide for College Tutors and Peer Educators presents relevant and research-based methods for successful academic support sessions for tutors and peer educator trainees in an adaptable, user-friendly, and interactive format. By mirroring appropriate methods for organizing and presenting material in an academic support session, it allows the reader to experience for themselves the practices and strategies they will apply as future tutors and peer educators. Based on solid learning theory, the activities, assessments, examples and features included in this flexible and engaging text simulate recommended peer educator practices and emphasize guiding college students to become active, self-monitoring and independent learners. While teaching readers the key, research-based elements of quality peer assistance, this first-edition guide also incorporates a comprehensive list of topics represented in certification programs. Peppered with practical examples and interactive problem-solving scenerios that readers can immediately apply in their positions, trainees will learn how to plan for sessions, how to assess students' learning, how to create collaborative activities, how to integrate college learning strategies, and how to approach common issues faced on the job.
