Resources for New Tutors

I have been a preoccupied providing advice on how to quickly provide courses for online delivery, for students who are unable to get to class due to the Novel Coronavirus. But I need to get back to tutor training. I am finding the online course Contemporary Approaches University Teaching has some good material, but would take some pruning, as it is a 12 week, 24 hour course, not something a tutor can do in a few hours. Some useful resources for students I have found, mostly from ANU's Coffee Courses:
  1. LinkedIn recently predicted that the most in-demand soft skills with employers for 2020 will be creativity, persuasion, collaboration, adaptability, and emotional intelligence.Tutoring can help you refine these skills and provide evidence to a prospective employer you are leadership material.

  2. "... authentic real life assessment tasks should contain the challenges of a real life work context.
    From: Principles of authentic assessment, from Assessment and Feedback, Jill Lyall and Mandy Tutalo, ANU Coffee Course, 2019 URL
  3. In Small Group Teaching: From: Good practice examples in Module 3: Teaching practice, Enhancing Student Wellbeing, 2016. URL
  4. Seven Learning Concepts
    1. Deep vs Surface Learning,
    2. Extrinsic vs Intrinsic motivation
    3. Taxonomies of knowledge and learning
    4. Characteristics of Adult Learning
    5. Constructivism
    6. Student-centred learning
    7. Active learning
