S04-E17 This episode introduces us to Shelley-Anne who manages the SI program at Vancouver Island University in Canada. A majority of our conversation was spent with how Shelley-Anne has organized former SI leaders to serve as mentors to the new SI leaders. A great deal of responsibility has been delegated to the mentors with the training system, observations of the SI leaders, and other responsibilities. As a result, Shelley-Anne reports what the mentors say they have learned from their experiences. The SI leaders spend a great deal of time reflecting on their experiences both during and after the academic term. Shelley-Anne credits this and other activities as contributing to their personal and professional development. Our conversation ends with Shelley-Anne describing her own personal and professional development journey due to the SI program. This episode is the first of a four-part series featuring the study group program at Vancouver Island University in Canada.
I also include several documents so you can learn more about their institution. Since their institution is located in Canada, I also include background information about the education system in their country and also how higher education is organized.
