The Importance of the Embedded Planning Guide
Before the first embedded class session of the semester, contact faculty via email informing them of the course(s) you have been assigned, the specific days and times you plan to attend, and inquire when will be the best time to meet and discuss the semester and your role in the class using the Embedded Planning Guide.
Tutors can email individual students or the entire class using this tool. It is great for tutoring or deadline reminders, helpful links, and grammar writing tips.
Contributing to discussion posts allows tutors to provide feedback, monitor conversations, and ask probing questions to further the analysis and refocus dialogue if necessary.
This tool facilitates live visual and audio chats, enabling faculty, tutor, and student to communicate outside the class room and hold workshops. Note that sessions can be recorded, which can later be used to share with students or train new tutors.
