To kick off the Fall 2017 semester, writing center tutors gathered for a morning of breakfast treats and conversation.  New tutors were mixed with experienced tutors for an hour-long activity called “Tutor Talk Conversation Cafe.”  In small groups, tutors discussed questions pulled from an envelope:  questions directed at returning tutors, questions that focused on new tutors who will start at the writing center next week, and questions that everyone in the group could answer.  The main aim of this activity was to give new tutors a preview of the work they will be doing in the writing center.  However, other benefits included creating connections between new and returning staff and everyone learning from each other’s responses.
