Increasing the Effectiveness of Educator Induction Programs

State policy has a critical role to play to ensure that new educators are assisted from the first day they walk into their school and classroom in a way that will bolster their morale, keep them in the profession, strengthen their teaching and leadership abilities, and accelerate their impact on student learning. In 2011 and 2012, New Teacher Center had the opportunity to complete a detailed analysis of the state of Colorado's educator induction policies and practices. This final report details our full analysis and state policy recommendations.

I chose this article to help in my research about new teacher induction programs.

 

I hope this article helps others evaluate the effectiveness of their induction program.

Bradley Gomoluch's curator insight, July 23, 2015 3:35 PM

Good insight into new teacher induction policies and practices. It was interesting that programs report that they only offer support for first year teachers and those programs are not implemented with fidelity.   

Ben Bempong's curator insight, July 30, 2015 2:33 PM

Increasing the effectiveness of educator calls for collaboration from all staff members, principals, teachers, educators in the school.  To ensure educators about are all assisted, properly planned induction is needed in order to help facilitate teachers.  I chose this because learning about induction programs is key in knowing how to strengthen teaches learning and teaching ability.

Mentoring New Teachers...helps prevent burnout

Video: Mentorship for New Educators Helps Combat Teacher Burnout on PBS. 

 

For years, education experts have warned of a crisis of teachers quitting the profession. As burnout increases and the teacher exit rates reach into the hundreds of thousands, WTTW's Ash-har Quraishi reports on how one nonprofit organization is fighting the retention problem with better mentorship.

This video clearly states the steps that should be taken to increase the new teacher retention rate. New teachers need a support system that backs them. A support system of veteran teachers that have endured some of what they are currently going though.

 It is my hope that other administrators will read this so that they might be able to implement a mentoring program for their new teachers.

Recent research on mentoring refers to "on-line" mentoring or "telementoring".
Brian Jones's comment, September 30, 2014 8:27 PM
In Management Mentors' white paper a survey found that millennials "text, tweet, Instagram and email" their mentors. "41% say they prefer to communicate electronically at work than face to face or even over the telephone." (Management Mentors, p. 4 2014)
Brian Jones's curator insight, September 30, 2014 8:37 PM
Many recent articles on Mentoring focus the communication between the mentor and the mentee being "on-line" mentoring or "telementoring". The white paper from the "Management Mentors" highlights millennial generation mentees feeling comfortable texting, emailing, tweeting and instagraming. 41% indicated that they prefer to communicate electronically at work than face to face or even over the phone. (p. 4, 2014).
