Donna Evans, Ph.D.
LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) ⎯ Donna Evans, Ph.D., assistant professor of English and writing at EOU, shares the results of her investigation into the dynamics of student tutoring for the next colloquium on Nov. 8.
As the director of EOU’s Writing Center, Evans provides training for student writing tutors. Her presentation “When the Lines You See are Crow’s Feet: Self-Efficacy in Tutoring Nontraditional Student Writers” will focus on observations of traditional-age students expressing doubts about how they will engage in a meaningful, face-to-face dialogue with a student who is decades older without appearing disrespectful.
Evans’ qualitative study focuses on perceived self-efficacy among experienced, new and potential writing tutors, including building rapport, determining directive or nondirective strategies and discussing patterns of error.
The colloquium begins at 4 p.m. in Ackerman Hall, Room 210 and is free and open to the public. A reception with question and answer session with Evans will follow.
A list of related resources provided by EOU’s Pierce Library is available for more in-depth information on this topic. Visit http://library.eou.edu/colloquium. To be added to the colloquium mailing list call 541-962-3508.
