2013 Innovation of the Year Project Detail.


Johnson County Community College

Supplemental Instruction Embedded Tutors

Libby Corriston, Professor, Math Resource Center, and Kathryn Byrne, Associate Professor, Writing Center

Innovation Type:
Basic Skills and Developmental Education

Description:
The Supplemental Instruction Embedded Tutor (SIET) program is a means to embed peer mentor/tutors in developmental and gateway courses such as ENGL 106 (Introduction to Writing) and MATH 171 (College Algebra). These tutors model effective student behavior in class sessions, mentor students who have questions about the material being covered, and give students another venue for getting assistance in- and outside the classroom. SIET tutors also host unique study sessions outside regular class meeting times, which focus on real-world problem solving, and a more thorough exploration of topics that are most challenging to students. The SIET tutors are a low-cost option for the college to enhance the student experience at JCCC—they create another layer of support for students in the formative stages of their college career, and have helped realize 15-20% gains in retention and persistence in target sections.
