New to tutoring: Tutors@UQ

As part of our ongoing commitment to improving the quality of teaching and learning, the Faculty runs the Tutors@UQ program  in Orientation week of both semester 1 and semester 2.   All new tutors are expected to attend. Tutors will be paid for 4 hours of training time in total and lunch will be provided between sessions 1 and 2. Tutors will claim payment through their school. Schools may then seek reimbursement from the faculty.

The Tutors@UQ program was developed by the University after consultation with tutors, staff and students in 2009/10. Each tutor will be given a ‘learner Guide’ to assist them and serve as a reference point during their tutoring career at UQ. The program for the workshop includes:
 
Session 1 (10:00am to 12:00pm)                    (1) Expectations of tutors at UQ
                                                                        (2) Principles of student learning
                                                                        (3) Strategies for designing and managing tutorials/classes/labs for learning
 
Session 2 (1:00pm to 3:00pm)                       (1) Managing difficult situations
                                                                        (2) Assessment and feedback
                                                                        (3) Evaluating your tutoring
