Mentorship Magic: A Collaborative DLE Transition

On Demand
Session Type: Virtual
Delivery Format: On-Demand
The University of Wisconsin River Falls created a mentorship program for a transition to a new digital learning environment (DLE). This work involved migrating substantial content within a short time frame and training faculty, staff, and students. Participating mentors were first trained to create and deliver content; they then trained and mentored their colleagues. This mentorship program increased subject matter expertise early on, leading to a successful outcome of adoption and usage.

Outcomes: Understand the process involved in a successful DLE-transition mentorship program * Consider multiple aspects of the value of an inclusive strategic planning process * Understand ways this program model can be applied to other transformational digital changes in the academy
