Abstract

Mentoring is an important part of any educational experience, but especially in graduate programs. While online programs are designed to support working professionals, mentoring opportunities require intentional planning and design to foster engagement in the field for which students are seeking to become leaders in or transition into. The M.S. in Instructional Design and Learning Technology program at Anderson University has integrated remote graduate assistants, bi-semester virtual networking events, and career portfolio framework across the program that has led to positive outcomes for students and alumni. Program leaders and faculty are encouraged to attend this roundtable to learn and share mentoring approaches that are accessible to all students.
