As a mentor you have the opportunity to provide guidance to a student as they develop their learning outcomes and assist a student in reflecting on those outcomes. Reflection is a vital element in the learning process and will help the student develop critical thinking and self-reflection skills. Your final role is to complete the student "officially" in the Service-Learning online system.
After the student has reflected with you, you can log into your online system account, find the student's project, and click on the "Complete" button
You are not required to save the student's reflection activity after you have marked the student as complete in the Online System. However, if you find an exceptional reflection that you would like to share with the Center for Service-Learning, you can contact Benita Wagner, the Coordinator of Service-Learning.
"It's a unique opportunity for students to get a high-impact practice and learn a lot about what it means to be a leader once they leave Eau Claire."
