2006 Ron Maxwell Award

PeerCentered friend and IWCA Vice President Michele Eodice received the 2006 Ron Maxwell Award for Distinguised Leadership at last weekend's National Conference on Peer Tutoring in Writing (NCPTW). The award is given to

a professional in the organization who has contributed with distinction to undergraduate student development through promoting collaborative learning among peer tutors in writing.

Such leadership may be demonstrated in a variety of ways, including but not limited to:

  • the individual's record in bringing peer tutors to present at the Conference
  • service to the organization through hosting the Conference, serving as program chair, leading in the search for future sites, etc.
  • aiding students in the assumption of increasing responsibility for their learning
  • fostering leadership skills among peer tutors
  • showing evidence of leadership in collaborative learning on one's home campus
  • developing innovative peer tutoring programs in the home community
  • in general, welcoming and meeting new challenges in leading a center guided by a collaborative learning philosophy
Congratulations Michele!

I have a video put together of it that I will be pushing out on the PeerCentered podcast soon.
