New Approaches to Peer Mentor Training
Venue: Online Webcast
|Event Date/Time: Jan 20, 2011|
Many campuses train peer mentors for a variety of important roles: resident adviser, orientation leader, peer adviser or tutor, tour guide, and student government representative, to name just a few. Coordinating the training for all of these roles usually requires the involvement of the same campus resources and personnel, creating redundancy for administrators.
Join your colleagues online to learn how you can centralize your peer mentor training to ensure consistency, reduce costs, and minimize competition for presenters and peer leaders. This webcast will share tips and advice from two campuses that effectively centralized peer mentor training and student development efforts.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Because a coordinated effort requires organization and participation from many different campus stakeholders, we encourage professionals from a variety of student affairs departments to attend together, including residential life, orientation, student unions, student activities, and more.
Chief student affairs officers will benefit from understanding key considerations that must be taken into account when evaluating this option.
