What is the difference between the Product Design TA’s and mentors?
In the Product Design program we have two forms of support available for all students, TA’s and mentors. The primary distinction between the two roles is that TA’s will attend classes on a regular basis and help out in-person in-class and mentors work one-on-one with students, most often remotely.
While the exact schedule will vary, TA's can expect to need to be in class at least once a week throughout the course and will sometimes need to attend several consecutive lessons.
Design mentors are assigned one or two students to work directly with one-on-one and do not need to attend classes in-person. Mentors will likely provide much of their support online via Slack and some form of video chat service. Mentors will need to have availability of one to two(ish) hours each week most often, during evenings and weekends outside of regular 9 - 5 work hours.
There will be an option to select which role you are interested in later in the form.
Course details for cohort 3 of the Product Design program.
Bridge School is an 11-week program. This session of the Product Design program will begin on Tuesday, March 24th. Classes will run every Tuesday and Thursday from 6 - 9pm until Thursday, June 11th, 2020 and will be held in downtown Toronto.
What's in it for you?
This is a volunteer opportunity to help support junior and intermediate product designers level up. Having said that, Bridge doesn't just help students level up in their careers - we also help our instructors, mentors, and other volunteers level up in their careers in a meaningful way. We'll have regular check-ins, and give you thoughtful feedback. We'll give you the tools to become a better instructor, mentor, and leader.
Through volunteering, you'll gain a a richer appreciation for product development as a wholistic practice and have the opportunity to be a major part in changing the lives of twelve women, agender, and non-binary product designers. Plus it's a fun and inclusive community to join!
