HUMAN 3LM3 - The Art of Leadership: Mentorship

3 unit(s)

Effective leaders possess strong ethical values, emotional and social intelligence, excellent communication skills, and creativity; they have empathy, and are able to influence and inspire through informed, reasoned arguments. This structured course (lectures and experiential learning) provides up-front and on-going training in active leadership and mentorship, using aspects of the learning-centred mentoring paradigm, such as reciprocity, collaboration, and the achievement of mutually-defined goals. Students participate in peer-to peer mentoring of first year international students in the McMaster English Language Development (MELD) program whose first language is not English. Students document their learning through the Learning Portfolio.
