WHAT IS A BOOTCAMP MENTOR?

  • A peer, experienced in Learning Design or Education for Sustainable Development, who provides advice and guidance as the teams progress through the Bootcamp.
  • Not there to give all the answers, but to support the teams in working through and reflecting on their designs in their context.
  • A good mentor is open and honest, non-judgemental, encouraging, positive, takes time to listen, asks questions, is trusting and trustworthy.
