RPGFO Academy Mentoring Program

Postby Gideon » Sun Feb 27, 2011 1:59 am

<center>RPGFO Academy Mentoring Program</center>

I know the Academy has undergone a few changes and refurbishments in the last year or so, but after a lengthy analysis of the current students, their needs within the Academy, what they come to the Academy wanting to learn, and the variety of different class types we have running, it seems that the Academy�s current structure isn�t working. The assessments and deadlines and often RPing within classes doesn�t seem to work, and the students aren�t getting the most out of their time.

So the decision has been made to abolish the old school, traditional Academy structure of the various classes.

Instead, we are going to offer a one on one mentoring and tutoring service. This will provide one on one, private and confidential tutoring and mentoring to each and every individual student, using a program and time table tailored to the students� individual needs. It means students will have their questions answered and be able to learn exactly what they want to learn, without having to worry about waiting for other students to hand in assignments, to get feedback and move on to the next step in their learning.

The Master Class option will still be available, although there doesn�t seem to be a demand for it at the moment.

<center>What You Can Do To Help</center>

Aya and I are already signed on as mentors, and we are recruiting for some more. I would love it if you guys were willing and able to donate your time. I think this format is going to be more beneficial to all, because you�ll be able to organise between yourselves the times you�ll be available and your preferred method of contact.

As a mentor, there would be a few things required of you:
* You should be a fairly established member of the site.
* You should be an experienced Role Player.
* If you are going to be absent from the site for any reason, please let myself and your current students know.
* You have to keep records within the Academy. You�ll be given your own �Office� within the Staffroom, and you�ll just need to keep records detailing your students name, the date you commenced with them, what they came wishing to learn, and the date they finished. This will allow me to tailor Master Classes/Lectures to everyone.
* You�ll have to put up with me PM�ing you once a week to make sure all is going ok, and sending you little notices!

Aside from that, the job itself isn�t very demanding.

So if you're interested in becoming a mentor, all you have to do is copy the form below and send it in a PM to Gideon, who will assess your suitability and contact you to let you know the outcome.

I might possibly be able to help with this, Gideon. It might work out better with my schedule as one on one. So I'll volunteer if you think I'm qualified ^^
