Peer Mentoring (SLAMS)
Effective peer mentoring
Experience and qualifications matter to employers, but they aren’t the only attributes that employers look for. The so-called ‘soft skills’ – such as effective communication, peer mentoring and leadership – are especially attractive to companies looking for the next generation of leaders.
In this credential you’ll reflect on the skills and knowledge that you have gained through your experience as a mentor: your interpersonal communication skills, such as active listening and questioning, providing effective feedback and facilitating meetings in a constructive, culturally sensitive and non-confrontational way.
After reflecting on your experience as a mentor you should expect to be able to demonstrate how the peer mentoring experience has facilitated your development of employability attributes, including: self awareness, respect, empathy, initiative, patience, facilitation, identifying and responding to mentee learner styles and scaffolding mentee learning.
This credential is currently available to students participating in the SLAMS program and who have completed one semester of mentoring.
This Credential earns you a digital badge.
