Dian J Harrison, MSW, MPA's insight:

It is important to understand that if we want to insure that first generation and graduate students of color are successful in college and graduate school, then we have to provide them with all they need to reach that goal!  According to this article, a mentor can make all the difference in the achievement of these students!

Great article that touches on the existing (limited research) on mentoring and advising graduate students and first generation students of color.

Do You Have These Seven Leadership Qualities?

Do You Have These Seven Leadership Qualities? | Developing Online Learning Skills | Scoop.it

What does it take to be a great leader?


Once upon a time, birth order and socioeconomic status were considered powerful determinants in who would successfully climb the ladder.


Lately, though, the focus has shifted to personal qualities.

Guiding vision, passion, and integrity are well known leadership traits. But there are lesser known leadership traits, as well--in fact, some historically have been perceived as weaknesses.


These hidden traits can be developed and nurtured to help further your career and your role as a leader, at work, in your community, or in life in general.


See if you just might have some or all of these personal qualities that lend well to leadership:

Dian J Harrison, MSW, MPA's insight:

Some of the best leaders I've met are those that are at the community level....no formal education or training and called informal leaders.   But they are knowledgeable about community issues, are passionate, have loads of integrity and are very humble!  Good share Dyana! I couldn't agree with you more.

My favorite on this list is modesty, which I think is a seriously undervalued skill/talent in the workforce.  A good leader is one that makes those they work with look good (without taking all the credit for themselves).

This definitely speaks to the support that older students will need to be successful in online programs!  For some of these students, the technology learning curve will be steep but doable....... especially if they are used to reading a book in print!

De cómo la Digitalidad está acabando con los textos escolares clásicos: 

W. Bradley Gooderham's curator insight, June 20, 2014 11:22 PM

In 2013/14, I only used novels in English class and even then only to provide time away from a screen.  Every other class and activity used digital resources and engaged technology to find, sort, contextualize, and share information.   This is a very interesting infographic. 

Dyana Mason's curator insight, June 23, 2014 11:06 PM

Digital devices are re-shaping the classroom. I've seen some new tools in action.  As educators, we should learn how students are using these new tools and adjust our teaching appropriately.

Dian J Harrison, MSW, MPA's insight:

Online students are successful because they have learned to manage their time, participate actively in live session, communicate with the professor when they have questions or concerns and staying motivated by connecting with their cohort on a regular basis.
