Summary: In this webinar we would like to explore the ‘how, what and why’ of mentoring. Mentoring is an inherently personal role, and mentors receiving the same theoretical role description might be completely different mentors in practice.
During this webinar we would like to offer a small look on the theoretical side of mentoring, but our primary aim is to have a discussion about what mentoring entails for individual mentors. Discussions will be supported by four propositions that, depending on the number of participants, will be discussed plenary or in smaller groups, and in case of a large audience via voting options in Zoom.
We want to support mentors in discovering that there usually is not ‘one correct way to mentor’ but that the chosen mentoring approach in a given situation depends on for example mentors’ personal goals and norms, practical experience and knowledge coming from formal education such as faculty development.
A part of the webinar will also be dedicated to research on ways of mentoring and how to support mentors in discovering which way of mentoring works for them via faculty development.
Target Audience: Mentors, faculty developers, mentor program coordinators.
