GPC 310 has been designed to facilitate the development of leadership, communication and helping skills among 3rd and 4th year students by providing them an opportunity to assist in the delivery of the “GPC 100 First Year on Campus Seminar” course to first year METU-NCC students. GPC 310 students’ responsibilities pertaining to GPC 100 are; (a) facilitate small group discussions, (b) assist in checking attendance and active participation, (c) untangle the troubles encountered in the application process and (d) give continuous feedback in the course evaluation. Through discussion and small group exercises, students enrolled in this course are introduced to a variety of topics designed to enhance their skills in the following areas: effective communication, ethical and professional behavior, peer education, study and time management skills, conflict resolution and problem solving. The focus of this course is on the development of skills and knowledge that will not only support the students’ work as peer guides with 1st year students but will also provide essential training and experience in the development of leadership, communication, and helping skills that will be helpful in other settings. The class also provides the means for the evaluation, reflection and processing of student experiences as a peer guide.
