Online Tutoring: Going It on Your Own, or Collaborating

Tuesday, March 09 | 4:00PM–4:50PM | Room 551
Session Type: Professional Development
Providing online tutoring for today's college student is a growing challenge for student support services in higher education. Some institutions contract with an outside vendor to provide this service, while others create their own virtual tutoring programs. Many schools, however, find they do not have the resources, human or monetary, to attempt either option. This session will explore practical steps and challenges for setting up one's own virtual tutoring program and will include lessons learned. The session will also share the challenges and benefits drawn from community colleges that choose to participate in, a collaborative program provided by the Connecticut Distance Learning Consortium (CTDLC).
