Adult Literacy Volunteer Tutors Network

(viewed 800 times)

Hi Everyone.

My name is Nina Woodrow and I work as the Adult Literacy Volunteer Tutor Coordinator at Yeronga Institute of TAFE in Brisbane, Queensland. Adult Literacy Volunteer Tutors have been a part of the TAFE environment in Queensland for more than 20 years. Tutors undertake a short qualifying training program in literacy tutoring and then work under the supervision of Tutor Coordinators to provide unpaid support and tuition to students struggling to improve their literacy and numeracy skills in a range of contexts. This network will provide the means by which tutors from two institutes of TAFE in Brisbane (Yeronga Insistute of TAFE and Moreton
Institute of TAFE) can form a larger community of practice.

Volunteer Tutors, Tutor Coordinators and Literacy Teaching staff will interact with each other using online communication tools and develop a new set of e-learning skills through the creation of "digital stories" (DST). We envisage that DSTs created by tutors will allow us to document experiences
with within the programs, and capture the skills and knowledge generated through the practice of literacy tutoring. These stories will then be uploaded to a customised e-learning platform (Janison LMS at YIT) . We hope that the DSTs, and the network, will help us to identify the approaches and
strategies that can overcome barriers to learning and allow us to share these more readily with each other and the wider VET community.!DEPTSTAMP1!
