R100 | TBA | Bob Vantine
Description of course content: This course is a practical way to
learn and apply mentoring skills and strategies through supervised
peer mentoring. Course activities will increase knowledge and enhance
skills essential to the delivery of responsible, high quality
mentoring service. Course readings, assignments, and class sessions
will provide foundation for understanding the process of mentoring,
ways of understanding human behavior, and forces that shape that
behavior. Through reflection, the professional, ethical, and moral
dimensions of responsibly taking on the role of mentor in the life of
another person will be examined.
As meaningful connections are developed between concepts and
experience, this course will provide students the opportunity to
enhance leadership capabilities, communication skills, and the
potential to positively influence others through the mentoring process.
