Learning objectives of module:
Time: 30 minutes
Give a brief overview of the program structure during the tutor training. Outline the program’s location, schedule, matching process, supervision structure, resources, etc. You can either do this yourself or ask a returning volunteer to provide the information. Ask tutors if they have any unanswered questions.
The volunteers may have already learned about the structure of the program through the orientation process. However, this overview is useful as it ensures the tutors have a common understanding and gives you the opportunity to clarify any misunderstandings.
Use one or two of the suggestions below to clarify volunteer roles and responsibilities. Use flipchart paper to record all responses.
A learning approach guides tutors in their work with students. Learning approaches can be based on values such as inclusion, anti‐racism or empowerment through knowledge. The learning approach that Frontier College uses is called Student Centred Individualized Learning (SCIL).
