The Rowman & Littlefield Guide to Learning Center Administration
Leading Peer Tutoring Programs in Higher Education
Daniel R. Sanford, Michelle Steiner
The Rowman & Littlefield Guide to Learning Center Administration is a comprehensive guide to everything that both new and experienced learning center professionals need to know in order to deliver impactful, effective services for the campuses they serve, articulate the value of the programs they oversee, and provide peer tutors with the conditions for success. The companion to the popular Rowman & Littlefield Guide for Peer Tutors, The Rowman & Littlefield Guide to Learning Center Administration provides a thorough and readable overview of both theoretical considerations (the historical context of learning centers in higher education, an articulation of the principles that underlie peer tutoring programs, and a cataloging of the various extant forms of peer-led learning) and organizational concerns (building a suite of programming, hiring and training student employees, program assessment, campus outreach, marketing, reporting) in the administration of peer tutoring programs in higher education. The Rowman & Littlefield Guide to Learning Center Administration presents a structured approach that is firmly grounded in empirical findings from across the literature of teaching, learning, and student success, and it articulates a set of best practices that can be used as a guide in evaluation and assessment for learning centers.
