How to View and Use a New Video Training Series for Peer Mentors
For students who support their peers academically in inclusive college programs, building strategies is often a learning process. This webinar will introduce an open video resource being developed for Think College by a student at Virginia Commonwealth University who supports students with intellectual disability in their classes. The video series shares tips and strategies that other students can use as peer supports or mentors. The webinar will emphasize the importance of training and supporting peer mentors as they work with peers by using resources such as this video series which includes an introductory video as well as tutorials on how to do a task analysis, the importance of flexibility in planning, and how to approach a writing assignment. The presenter, Megan Goldfarb, has also made available some information about the technical aspect of these videos: how they were planned, filmed, and edited. You can watch the videos here!
