Panel: Tutoring Boundaries
Moderator: Shahin Sarabi, University of Alberta
How and Why Writing Centre Tutors Can Set Healthy Boundaries During the Pandemic and Beyond
Stephanie White (University of Waterloo), Olivia Davitt (University of Waterloo), Roniksha Kumar (University of Waterloo), Maša Torbica (University of Waterloo)
In this panel, we will describe the value of boundary-setting training for writing centre tutors and share our training materials. Participants will hear from peer tutors and their manager about a professional development session we carried out at our writing centre and how that session has impacted our tutoring practices. They will also have an opportunity to consider how to integrate the idea of healthy boundaries into their own tutor practice or training.
