Overview of Products

The UTC produces materials for use in training tutors, teaching assistants, group study session leaders, and other educators who want to use a peer assistance approach. We use the materials to train our own tutors and Supplemental Instruction leaders and make them available to other educators. Our training products are based on both our experiences in tutor training and research on learning. The philosophy that guides our methods of tutoring and training is the same: Learners need to observe accurate models and have plenty of opportunities for practice, reflection, and discussion.
