The Florida State University's Learning District: A Case Study of an Academic Library-Run Peer Tutoring Program
Demeter, Michelle
Public Services Quarterly, v7 n3-4 p136-143 2011
In March 2010, the first floor of the main library at The Florida State University was renovated as a learning commons. With this change in design, all tutoring that existed throughout the library was moved into the commons. The crown jewel of these programs is the library's in-house, late-night peer tutoring program that has seen incredible growth since its inception in fall 2009. Through the explication of various assessments, the author addresses the successes and failures of this nascent tutoring program that seeks to incorporate both academic and social benefits in an effort to positively impact student success. (Contains 6 tables and 1 footnote.)
