2.6 Defining the affiliated guide role
Using the skills and competencies required of an affiliated guide as a starting point, draw up a table of five tasks that the role involves and five tasks that it does not involve.
Table 3 shows some examples to get you started.
Table 3 Affiliated guide tasks
|What the affiliated guide role does involve||What the affiliated guide role does not involve|
|Supporting the course facilitators||Teaching|
|Maintaining a friendly and supportive online presence||Policing any disputes that arise|
- Create a message to learners to explain the nature of your role and setting boundaries about what that role does and does not involve.
- You may wish to update your learning log with reflections on what you need to tell learners about the role and how you will manage your time.
