Mentoring in Educational Contexts · 4th Edition [March 15 – April 27 2021]

Mentoring has been around for a long time and we all think we know what it is. However, over the years, mentoring has developed into a significant field of study with multiple applications in education.

In our course we will have the opportunity to discuss ideas around what mentoring is, or isn't. We will discuss and compare mentoring to other models of helping relationships we may also find in education (tutoring, coaching, teaching, counselling). 

Whether or not you are actively involved in a mentoring programme in your school, this course will prepare you to confidently contribute in already running programmes as well as setting up your own projects in your own context.

I do not intend to give ideas of "ready made" ideas, or tell you what you should or shouldn't do, but rather to build your confidence and awareness to enable you to further develop your own ideas and think about wider applications for mentoring in educational contexts.

Important note:

ASYNCHRONOUS WORK — the course contains a discussion forum which runs each week after class, which requires participation on the weekend. You may have 1 hour of other reading or research, and 1 hour (spread over Saturday and Sunday) to interact with each other. The forum discussion ends two days before the next class. 

(Remember, if the course were face-to-face, there would probably be a class on the weekend).
