The College of Engineering and Computer Science (CECS) Tutoring Quality Program (TQP) organized its first discussion forum for Semester 1 2009 today.
Paul Preston from the Academic Skills and Learning Centre led a discussion forum on the role of tutors in effectively supporting and guiding student objectives of learning and understanding.
The Tutoring Quality Program is a Community of Practice (CoP) for tutors and demonstrators in the College of Engineering and Computer Science at the Australian National University.
Tutors provide essential support and scaffolding for effective teaching and learning practice in the university context. The TQP provides a necessary and much-required forum for the development of best practices in teaching and learning.
Several interesting ideas emerged from the discussion which will definitely result in better-informed and capable tutoring practice.
