Engaging 'students as partners' in the design and development of a peer-mentoring program

Journal Article


Abstract


  • This presentation focussed on an innovative approach to developing peer mentoring programs. Drawing

    upon a

    ‘student as partners’ framework, the presentation explored how this has been used to underpin

    an approach to peer mentoring from the groun

    d up. University peer mentoring programs are largely

    designed and developed by staff, who not only recruit and train student mentors but also select

    frequency and type of involvement for all parties. This pilot project proposes a different approach by

    coll

    aborating with students in the design, development and enactment of a peer

    -

    mentoring program

    within one School of Education. From this pilot, we will develop guidelines and recommendations for the

    implementation of student

    -

    led peer mentoring programs (Stud

    ents as Partners in Mentoring: SaPiM)

    across the University of Wollongong (UOW).
