Harvard Educational Review Teacher Mentoring and Induction

For decades, induction and mentoring programs have been public school districts’ response to low teacher retention rates. Hal Portner’s edited book, Teacher Mentoring and Induction: The State of the Art and Beyond, aims “to put induction and mentoring into perspective.” Induction and mentoring programs in K–12 school districts employ various strategies to recruit, develop, and retain teachers in the classroom. This collection of twelve essays provides a description of the current state of induction and mentoring programs, proposes next steps the field must take to improve induction and mentoring programs, and appends exercises to guide practitioners through an analysis of their own induction and mentoring programs.

SEMER Catherine's insight:

Not precisely on topic, but quite a novative approach.

 

Actually, this idea could be transfered to school. Why not ask students to prepare questions to a chosen mentor, who would be eminent in his/her field, and through an agreement with the latter, send the questions? The mentor's answers could be recorded and published on line. In such a way, if for instance all the chosen mentors' answers were published on the same website, every student around the world could benefit from it.

It could also be done through Google handouts or other web 2.0 applications.

It could be some sort of globalized mentorship program.
