It's a Wrap: Digital Video and Tutor Training.
Essid, Joe
A paper describes a project in which a writing center created a Web site using digital video (DV) along with essay texts, scenario notes, and a Web-based response exercise, in order to better prepare writing tutor apprentices for a range of ethical and pedagogical dilemmas which might occur. The paper begins by discussing reasons for the project and the process for making the videos. It then discusses the five scenarios filmed: (1) The Angry Writer; (2) The Fix-It Shop; (3) The Reluctant Revisor; (4) The Grammar Tutorial; and (5) The Nontraditional Student. The paper continues by discussing technological aspects of the project. It concludes with descriptions of additional scenarios filmed later, including: an ESL student, a friend who wants tutoring, a writer with an offensive paper, and a writer who is a student athlete.
