Join us on this course to explore how mentors can support and develop the work of teachers in schools. The course aims to support mentors working with teachers by offering them strategies and tools for their work with teachers as well as examples of effective mentorship approaches leading to more effective, happier, and successful teachers. The course offers a framework for mentors of all experience levels to exchange ideas, experiences and resources.
The course is relevant to all kinds of mentors, coaches, or tutors working at school or university level. However, the focus is primarily on mentoring of colleagues within a school. Particular references are also made to the mentoring of beginning teachers, helping them to find their place in the school and classroom.
As part of the course, you will prepare a review and planning document designed to support your work with your mentee(s) after finishing the course.
To get the most out of the course, you can participate and share your thoughts on Twitter using the hashtag #MentoringMOOC.
