Dan Bassill: Tutor/Mentor Institute’s four part strategy and application to problem-solving in any social sector in any country

Learning2gether: Sunday, April 15, 2012

Dan Bassill of the Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC describes the four part strategy he has developed to support the growth of a mentor-based youth-development strategy and how it might be applied to problem-solving process in any social sector and in any country. Dan will also talk about how youth in high schools and colleges can take a significant role in this process and how this will enhance their own learning, problem solving and communications skills while also creating future leaders who are better prepared to solve social and environmental problems via world-wide learning and collaboration.  Dan says “While I apply this strategy to what I do to help kids in poor neighborhoods of Chicago, I feel the model applies to any problem solving effort.” You can review the 4 part strategy at http://tinyurl.com/TMC-4-Part-Strategy.

Dan talked about how he conceives channeling knowledge into action through a 4-part strategy he articulated through mindmaps and other visuals. His work has a lot in common with that of Webheads, MOOCs, and EVO (which I have argued possibly IS a MOOC) in that he taps cognitive surplus to leverage volunteer effort while trying to scale and sustain through getting the attention of (i.e. the information out to) the business community to show them how their interests coincide with those of the Tutor/Mentor Institute.
