EOI invited in ASCILITE’s 2024 CMP/Women in Professional Leadership Programs
Applications (EOI) in the 2024 CMP/WiPL are now being accepted and are due by 3rd March 2024 (Sunday). Both potential mentors and mentees are required to submit an EOI to express interest in the program and the successful applicants will be matched with a mentor or mentee in the week of 11th March 2024. The ASCILITE CMP has been operating since 2003 and over 200 members having taken part to date. The program is recognised by members for its value in coaching, facilitating and networking for both mentors and mentees. It aims to provide mentoring opportunities across a number of fields including educational technology, academic development, learning development, faculty education, early career research, graphic design and programming. Applications for mentors or mentees could be completed via this form.
Following feedback from our 2023 participants, Women in Professional Leadership (WiPL) program will become a two year, standalone program that will have more of a focus on professional development and networking, for mentees and mentors, in the initial months, followed by small group or 1-1 mentoring. The aim of WiPL is to provide opportunities for women in learning design, educational technology and similar roles at HEW 7 or above to receive mentoring and support in developing relevant leadership skills and confidence to support them to further their careers. Mentors in this program will be drawn from staff in professional roles at HEW 8 and above and industry partners/consultants with sustained experience in these types of roles. Details of the revised program, which will be coordinated by Dr Hazel Jones, are currently being finalised and will be added to the website in coming weeks. Applications are welcomed from potential mentees and mentors via this form and close on 3rd February 2024 (Sunday).
A combined informative/Q&A webinar will be held for CMP and WiPL at 1pm (Sydney time) on 28th February 2024 (Wednesday).
Anyone interested in the CMP/WiPL is welcome to attend this information session in order to learn about the programme and what it means to become a mentor or a mentee. The session will be presented by 2023 CMP members and chaired by the CMP coordinators Associate Professor Kwong Nui Sim, Dr Hazel Jones and Dr Robert Vanderburg. If you can’t make it to the info session, you can still find out about the program on the ASCILITE website and apply to nominate as a mentor or mentee in the program.
