Rolheiser Literal Figurative Spaces (2018 Archive)


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.
