The Rutgers Learning Centers provide training sessions throughout the semester for any academic peer leader at Rutgers (tutors, study group leaders, peer instructors, learning assistants, etc.). RLC tutors and learning assistants are required to participate in at least two of these sessions, in addition to the initial New Peer Leader Training. If you work as an academic peer leader for another program at RU, you are also welcome to participate in our trainings. Each training session will address a specific topic and will involve activities and group discussion.

In this workshop, you will learn about strategies for measuring the effectiveness of your instruction during a session. You will learn specific strategies for understanding how fully your students understand the material. You will learn how to ask the right questions, design short "check for understanding" activities, and provide feedback effectively.

If you have any questions regarding the training sessions, please contact Stacey Blackwell.
