Student-Centered Mentoring is a collaborative approach to support mentees that focuses heavily on the impact of students’ learning. In this 3-part series, you will learn strategies for blending the student-centered philosophy with your current methods. We will also examine ideas around developing efficacious teachers in a collaborative way. This includes looking closer at mindsets around learning and growing independent learners. We will also examine ways to extend equitable practices in order to fully support mentee’s self-efficacy.

  • Examine the Student-Centered Mentoring approach and how to balance support for mentees and mentors

  • Connect efficacy beliefs to the mentoring partnership and explore techniques to establish an innovative mindset

  • Dive deeper into ways that foster independent learners in the classroom and promote equitable practices for all learners
