All students applying for the PT LF position may serve as an LF in more than one subject area if demonstrated performance in each associated course is exceptional.
BRONCHO EDUCATION & LEARNING LAB (BELL) FORMERLY KNOWN AS TUTORING CENTRAL (TC). WHERE BRILLIANT STUDENT MINDS GATHER TO HELP BRONCHOS LEARN. Applications for positions in UCO’s BELL operate on a pool-basis. We collect qualified applications from students who are willing to help Bronchos learn through tutoring, conversations, study halls, and other activities devoted to academic endeavors. We strive to hire students who perform well and who demonstrate the greatest likelihood of returning and/or assuming future leadership roles in the BELL.
Learning Facilitators in the BELL are hired to help students learn in one or more subject areas under the direction of a Student Learning Coordinator and the BELL Administrative Oversight Team. We are seeking UCO graduate and undergraduate students who are passionate in two areas: (1) their key subject areas and (2) their commitment to helping others learn. Facilitators will provide assistance to Broncho students by assisting them with assignments and other academic endeavors.
Learning Facilitators are expected to maintain a schedule for appointments, provide learning session information, and complete reports for the Administrative Oversight Team. Opportunities exist for returning Learning Facilitators to advance. When not helping students learn, Learning Facilitators are responsible for completing assigned projects, subject-relevant tasks, and other duties associated with the BELL.
Peer Tutor Learning Facilitators (PT LF) are chosen based on their prior exceptional performance in each of the subject areas for which they will help facilitate learning in client sessions. Chosen LFs should have demonstrated successful course completion in the areas in which they will become a PT LF. They will engage in one-on-one appointments, walk-in appointments, study halls, and other client sessions to facilitate learning for current UCO students.
This is a semester-long commitment, which requires 15 hours per week for the entire semester employed; more hours may be granted to PT LFs who are asked to return to the BELL. The PT LF is expected to:
Excellent communication skills both written and oral.
Required character traits: Dependability, thoroughness, and initiative.
Have sensitivity of intercultural communication, and have good interpersonal skills.
Repetitive movement of hands and fingers - typing and/or writing. Frequent standing, and/or sitting. Occasional walking, stooping, kneeling or crouching. Reach with hands and arms.
