Product Design Mentor

Designlab’s courses focus on web, UX and UI design. As a Designlab mentor, you will work with amazing students from around the world; connect to other top designers; and earn money while giving back to the design community. If your application is successful, you will be paired with students whose availability matches yours and you will mentor them through the duration of their course.
Designlab mentorship is part-time and flexible – you choose how many students you can take on per month, and in which courses, at the times that suit you. If you are able to commit 3-6 months to mentoring, you can apply to mentor for our more rigorous, advanced courses like UX Academy and Career Services. Once you have committed to a student, you will need to be available to mentor them on a weekly basis for the duration of their course.
Mentor Responsibilities:
  • Leave online feedback about your students’ project work within 48 hrs
  • Conduct 1:1 video sessions with your students (via Skype/Zoom/Hangouts etc.)
  • Evaluate student progress according to the student’s course goals—assist with weekly lesson planning/time management
  • Help students with any topics or issues they’re currently struggling with
  • Provide guidance on professional development—overall sanity check
  • Ensure that the quality of the deliverables is as high as it can be based on the student goals. For example, if a student wants to do a career change into UX we would expect you to be more rigorous with this student than with one who’s just learning a new skill for fun
Mentor Experience:
