S29: Providing Supplemental Help to Struggling Students

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Most campuses have a way for students to get supplemental tutoring for science classes.  These resources are an invaluable tool for helping students understand Chemistry concepts and often provide a place for focused learning.  Some students go in for a quick question and other should bring a sleeping bag.  Unfortunately, there aren’t many opportunities for those involved with science learning centers, tutoring, and supplemental instruction to come together and share best practices.  This symposium will showcase tutoring at various institutions including their best practices and struggles.
