Civic and Community Engagement Across the Disciplines (CCExD) Series
Growing a Leader: Mentor and Mentee Create a Sustainable Collaborative Model
Insights from the Service Learning Assistnat Program
Date: Friday, February 28th, 2013
When: Noon- 1:30pm
Where: Hine Hall (IP), Room 243, Center for Service and Learning Conference Room
About: Join an experienced service learning faculty member and one of her Service Learning Assistants (SLAs) as they discuss mentoring relationships in the context of academic service learning. As with any mentoring activity, preparing students for collaborating with diverse communities requires an additional time commitment and an emphasis on skills development for students, faculty, and partners alike.
How can a faculty member orchestrate this process over the long term to benefit the student, student learning, and partner outcomes? In this session, Dr. Blackwell and Mr. Lane will focus on the collaborative approach they’ve taken to scaffold SLA support in ways that build mentee confidence and civic leadership skills and which, also, enable the faculty member to effectively manage their workload and relationships with community partners.
Presenters: Jackie Blackwell, PhD, Associate Professor, Early Childhood/Elementary Education, IU School of Education; Derek Lane, Undergraduate, IUPUI
Audiences: All are welcome. This session may be of particular interest to those that work with Service Learning Assistant (SLA) Scholars or who administer programs that place students in community based settings.
Sponsor: IUPUI Center for Service and Learning
