Implementing TiTo: The Getting Started Toolkit

Application for face-to-face, online and blended learning contexts

TiTo has been designed for application in face-to-face, online and blended learning environments. Regardless of the mode of learning, mentors work with small groups of first year students. Mentors can be trained, either face-to-face or online, using the material under Training Resources.

Working with tutors

Core to the success of the TiTo model are tutors who are present in the classroom during the face-to-face peer mentoring sessions. Tutors need to have a thorough understanding of the mentoring process and be trained to work collaboratively with mentors.
