Mobile mentoring project kick off to be held Oct. 25

October 19, 2017

Finlandia University’s mobile mentoring project with Finnish app developer Mesensei will kick off with a workshop on Wednesday, October 25 from 6 to 9 p.m. in the Finnish American Heritage Center. This event is free and open to the public. The workshop will provide insight on the different uses of mentorship in support of teaching, career services, alumni relations, and fundraising, based on case studies and experiences from Europe, Asia and Canada.

Beginning in November, Finlandia students and alumni will be participating in an innovative pilot-project utilizing a mobile mentoring application developed by the Helsinki-based Mesensei, a leader in education technology. The project is expected to last three months during which time between 20-40 student-mentor pairs will utilize the application and give feedback on its features and usability as a mobile mentoring platform.
