Rural eMentoring BC

eMentoring program curriculum analyst

Theme: Rural Education
Age Group: Secondary

Position Description

The CFE student would analyze participant feedback and make updates and improvements to the program and the curriculum. We collect feedback via surveys of mentors, mentees and teachers, so the student would review these surveys and identify what we did well and what we can improve. The student would also review our curriculum to identify areas in need of updates and improvements. Based on their assessment of the curriculum and user feedback, the student would make changes to the curriculum. The student would also engage in discussions with the eMentoring staff on how to improve outreach and communication with rural teachers. We have had difficulty raising awareness of our program and getting teachers to buy into it, so we would appreciate having a teacher candidate help us figure out what we are doing wrong, and how we can improve. We also have difficulty getting teachers to stick to a schedule and use the program properly, so we would appreciate help in these areas as well.

Timeline might be as follows, weeks 1 and 2: learn to use the program, go through curriculum, analyze user feedback, identify changes needed, present findings to eMentoring staff; weeks 2 and 3: implement changes identified, review and provide feedback on how the program communicates with rural teachers.

This is experience is online only.

Expected hours Flexible.
Staff work Monday to Friday 8 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Organization Information

Rural eMentoring BC matches rural high school students with mentors who are post-secondary students. The pairs send messages to each other through our online platform, and messaging is asynchronous so they can send messages whenever they want. The pairs discuss a modular curriculum that is designed to get them thinking about life after high school. We are an initiative of the Rural Education Action Plan, and funded by Doctors of BC, so we are able to offer the program free to all participants.
