A "Shared Repertoire" of Choices: Using Phenomenology to Study Writing Tutor Identity
Friedrich, Tom
Learning Assistance Review, v19 n1 p53-67 Spr 2014
Tutoring services often restrict their data collection and analysis practices to publicizing session counts and tutee GPAs. This study suggests that programs that offer writing consultation may enhance their sessions' epistemic power by researching their tutoring staff's instructional choices. After explaining why and describing how a phenomenological methodology was used to map one program's tutors' choices in sessions, this article closes by sharing the implications of this research fo rthe program of interest and other sites.
