for training purposes - and "assessing" quality
Deb Baker
01:30:51
I love that "here's what I value" approach. I try to be careful not to use a "compliment sandwich" which has been shown to be ineffective. Instead, I try to think of and model this pattern: "You've gotten started. I hear you saying you're stuck/dissatisfied/frustrated (because they don't come to us if they think things are going well). Here's what will help you: try this, this and this and I think you'll have what you need to successfully finish this paper."

Ben-- a couple of good articles on scaffolding writing tutoring examine that interactional quality. Might be of interest!
Elizabeth Dolinger
01:37:25
Also - the reason why those tutors exist and why they are trained and able to do the work they do REQUIRES a LOT of training from Librarians.

Thank you so much Elizabeth and Kate! My low battery means I’ll disappear in a minute. But this was great!

AND WC expertise

Thanks for joining us, Katherine
Elizabeth Dolinger

Its through the tutors that I actually increase the bandwidth of the library the librarians, research support, and help.
Daisy Benson
01:39:56
Yes ^

Collaboration b/c staff has been cut is a bad idea, since peer mentors or tutors can’t be librarians (or faculty). But collaboration b/c we believe in the power of peer learning is another thing
Kate Tirabassi
01:40:42
^yes!
Daisy Benson
01:41:14
A really crucial distinction
Elizabeth Dolinger
01:43:06
and the challenges we face are so similar! challenges with instructors, with students, with getting admin to recognize expertise
Elizabeth Dolinger
01:44:55
I think what we see in our cross trained tutors is that because of the training, they flow between research and writing more readily - they identify an information problem in ways that without training they may not otherwise.
Carolyn Gamtso
01:45:25
So true, Elizabeth!
susan harrington
01:45:49
Yes, these collaborations can also be extended to WAC/WID programs so easily, if there is a WAC program too
Meaghan Dittrich (she/her)
01:46:25
Yes, Susan! I’d love to have another session like this that talks about how to do this with WAC/WID programs
susan harrington
01:46:36
That would be excellent, Meaghan
Kate Tirabassi
01:47:09
We’re hoping to have further conversations around more specific questions, so maybe that’s one?
Meaghan Dittrich (she/her)
01:47:21
Good idea, Kate!
