Online Workshop: Online Practices for Tutoring In Mathematics, NSF – Aug 11-13

Online Workshop: Online Practices for Tutoring In Mathematics Using Meaningful (OPTIMUM) Interactions, August 11 – 13, 2021, 1:00 – 4:00 pm (EDT)

The COVID-19 pandemic forced many colleges and universities to shift their mathematics tutoring options online. There was little guidance available for how to make this transition, and a patchwork of technologies were used. We have learned a lot in the last year about what works well. Although the future looks promising for returning to in-person tutoring, many institutions have indicated that online tutoring will continue to be available after the pandemic is over. Providing a high quality online tutoring experience for students is critical for their success. Please join us for a workshop in which we share what we have learned about how to improve the online tutoring experience.

During this virtual hands-on workshop, we will cover:

  • Technologies we have found to be particularly helpful – you will get practice with them!
  • Scheduling considerations.
  • Training tutors to most effectively use the technology and online environment.

A detailed schedule of sessions will be included with the second announcement on July 1. Registration is free. We kindly request you register by August 1.

Questions can be directed to: This workshop is supported by NSF IUSE award DUE-2043918. All findings and opinions are those of the research team and do not necessarily reflect the NSF’s position.
