From Beth Nastachowski, OWC Community Founding Member:
The Online Writing Center (OWC) Community invites another round of mentorship requests through our Mentorship Program beginning today through August 28 to support writing centers beginning or adjusting their online tutoring programs in response to COVID-19.
If you would like to be matched with a mentor, please send answers to the following questions to firstname.lastname@example.org:
· Your institution/association and the populations you will be working with online (high school students, undergraduates, returning adults, etc.)
· What kind of guidance are you looking for? What is your goal or hope for mentoring?
· What kind of online services are you researching or considering?
· What technologies are available through your center or larger institution/association?
We will then match you with an available mentor who can best support you. Mentors and mentees determine how and how often they would like to communicate. In the past, this has ranged from exchanging a few emails to meeting live once or a few times.
If you are interested in being a mentor this fall (and are not already on our mentors list), please fill out our Become a Mentor form on our website.
We’d prefer to have mentor requests and new mentor forms submitted by August 28, although we will continue to accept requests throughout the fall.
You’re welcome to send any questions to me as well. Thank you!
