BLE Webinar: Group Mentoring

Tuesday 25 June 10-11am BST





The purpose of this webinar is to share the method employed at LSHTM to recruit and train alumni mentors in order to enhance students’ learning experience. This has transferability across different HE contexts.


Aims of the session

1.       To present key findings from the group mentorship scheme in which alumni support Public Health MSc students undertaking a research project via distance learning through LSHTM

2.       To discuss the relevance for other contexts of the transferable lessons learnt

3.       To outline and share resources (e.g. mentor training slides, code of conduct and template emails) that may be adaptable to other contexts

4.       To gain insights from participants on whether these resources are useful / adaptable to different contexts, and whether this mentorship scheme is likely to be transferred elsewhere
