Tutor Training and Development

Tutor Training

Tutor training is run by a teaching specialist, starting with a 3 hour session covering essential knowledge, followed by a 6 week program that covers more specific aspects of tutoring and particular concerns of participants. The initial session is run at the start of semester 1 and repeated in semester 2.

Tutor Development

This program provides customised feedback questionnaires to students in tutorials and workshop classes. The questionnaires are then collated, automatically scanned, and the results summarised in a spreadsheet for review. Comments are collated and saved as a PDF. The ELU can help design the questionnaires and handle their processing. This program is best suited to subjects with a large pool of tutors with regular turn over.

The development aspect of this program offers two opportunities to improve teaching through observation and should be implemented after the review process:

  1. Formal observation and feedback - A process of working with tutors on an individual basis to identify areas that are done well or could be improved.
  2. Peer observation - This involves tutors observing sessions run by senior tutors to gain a better understanding of teaching.
