Transcript of Fall 2014 Mid-semester Mentor Training

Fall 2014
Mentor Training
Phases of Mentoring
Started the semester excited and ambitious...
The mentor/mentee relationship was romanticized.. Expectations versus realty.

Best Attribute of this Phase:

Between your classes and personal schedule the semester started very hectic/face paced. You were probably caught off guard somewhat, a new system, new student. Keeping up with not only your work, but also a dependent.
Things probably did not go as smoothly as you anticipated or wanted Your dependent at some point made you feel like you were wasting his time? Perhaps you received feedback in the form of exams or papers, that did not reflect the effort you and your student put into it.
Rejuvenation and Reflection
Our staff
Writing Studio
Rare Books Room and Library
Athletics librarian - Mondays from 4-6pm
Athletics writing tutor - Wednesdays from 4:15-6:15pm

What allowed you to survive this stage?
What could make it easier next semester?
How did organization or management of sessions contribute to this?
With fall break and the bye weekends we and the students all got a chance (although short!) to catch our breath. The last half of the semester hopefully will be easier, you know our system, payroll, your students abilities--and your own time commitments.
End of the semester is in sight--
What worked, what didn't?
What do you want to do differently next semester?
Encourage and praise

Continue with high expectations

Be specific with negative feedback
