Perspectives Event Series
The Power of High-Dosage Tutoring
Wednesday, August 24, 2022 at 1PM Eastern, 12PM Central, 10AM Pacific
Guests: Susanna Loeb, T. Ryan Hughes
1:1 tutoring is probably the single most powerful strategy to support academic recovery. In this virtual event, we speak to researchers and practitioners who have embraced this strategy to close gaps and accelerate learning.
Tutoring dates back centuries and may be among the oldest pedagogies still in existence. Many educational researchers agree that 1:1 tutoring is probably the single most powerful strategy to support academic recovery. High-dose tutoring, a specific intervention strategy meant to provide more regular, intensive, and personal instruction to students, is gaining popularity as a proven method to accelerate student learning.
We hope you'll join us and our guests Susanna Loeb and T. Ryan Hughes for a discussion that focuses on:
- Factors to consider for beginning robust tutoring programs to improve student learning outcomes
- Overcoming challenges with implementation
- Making high-dose tutoring an integral part of the intervention toolkit
Live attendees will receive an Attendance Certificate that may be used toward CEUs.
