S04-E18 This episode introduces us to Madelaine who is a study group leader for the SI program at Vancouver Island University in Canada. This is part two of a four-part series of the VIU program. Like many other study group leaders, she reported how she served as a tutor in high school and enjoyed the experience of assisting the teacher. In addition to sharing her two favorite learning activities she used during study sessions, she also shared why they are effective. We had an extended discussion about the use at her institution of a co-curricular record that is part of her transcript. The SI leader experience and the training becomes part of this record. I have heard of similar things at other U.S. institutions, but Madelaine indulged my numerous questions about the record. As I said during the conversation, there are wonderful educational innovations occurring in other countries.
