Academic Mentoring as a Pedagogical Tool


“You’re not just teaching; you’re teaching people”--Whether looking out at a sea of students from the lecturer’s podium or listening to a senior scholar at a conference, the importance of a relational connection between lectures and their students is as significance as it can be memorable.  By presenting three types of academic mentoring models—the encourager, the discussion-partner, and the director—this workshop will introduce mentoring as a cross-disciplinary tool of investment in academic success.  Mentorship will be approached as a relational experience which can inform the research and writing process, in addition to influencing teaching practices.  Grounded in the presenter’s experience as both student and teacher, this talk will present an opportunity to discuss and practice mentoring models in light of pedagogical possibilities of academic growth for both teachers and students.
