Peer tutoring: The bridge between knowledge banking and self-directed learning

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

As students enter college they are caught between the familiar -- teachers giving them information-- and the new --their need to learn independently. Peer tutoring bridges the gap between education banking and self-directed learning by introducing a facilitator in the self-directed learning process.

The delivery method for this session will consist of a half hour presentation discussing Knowles theory of self-directed learning, self-directed learning versus teacher-centered learning, and the results of my research. The second half of the session will be a discussion on how to start actively using self-directed learning as a tutoring technique and the different ways this can be enacted and how to train the peer tutors. We will also discuss what people are already doing to promote self-directed learning as part of the tutoring process.
