Description - Curricular Peer Mentoring by Tania Smith
In curricular peer mentoring programs, senior undergraduate students perform a practicum as a peer mentor in a "host course" - generally a class in which the peer mentor has previously excelled. They concurrently take a course or workshop in which they discuss scholarly readings on higher learning, and reflect on their service.
Curricular Peer Mentoring: A Handbook for Peer Mentors In Undergraduate Courses was written collaboratively by former undergraduate peer mentors Caleigh Rabbitte and Stephen Robinson and their instructor, Dr. Tania Smith. Intended to be used within courses or workshops for actively-serving peer mentors, the handbook introduces many of the essential concepts, roles, and activities involved in peer-assisted learning, and encourages critical and creative thinking about its opportunities and limitations.
This handbook, the first of its kind, will be useful in a variety of postsecondary programs where undergraduate students are trained to serve as academic peer mentors in courses. It is an invaluable resource for new Mentors navigating the course and practicum, as well as Instructors, Teaching Assistants, and other stakeholders who are interested in learning about this exciting new movement in postsecondary education.
