Creating literal and figurative spaces for faculty mentoring for teaching
20 Minute Presentation
Carol Rolheiser – University of Toronto
This research presentation focuses on creating the spaces (literal and figurative) in which mentoring for teaching relationships can thrive. Earlier research at the University of Toronto noted the need for both structured and unstructured peer-supported teaching initiatives, along with advocacy for enhancing departmental teaching cultures. The current presentation outlines a subsequent Knowledge Mobilization (KMb) strategy, and the results of a pilot peer mentoring program.
