Lots of useful tools for anyone doing research, from students working on a research paper, to writers contemplating a historical novel, to post-grad researchers trying to pull their latest publication together.

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.

Vikki Coleman's curator insight, August 3, 2016 3:56 PM
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.

Tacit Knowledge and the Student Researcher | Inside Higher Ed | The Dissertation Process | Scoop.it

I’m old enough that the annual Beloit Mindset List (created to help instructors avoid making what they think are contemporary cultural references that are actually historical to their students) is full of references to things that I never got around to knowing before they became passé.

 

I’ve started compiling a different list, one that identifies the tacit knowledge many of us have about information and how it works based on experiences that our students haven’t had. Here’s what I have so far.

Consciously think about the experts in your organization and deliberately learn from them. Identify what makes them valuable to the organization and come up with a plan to learn from them. THEN ask them to partner with you.

"In reality, a mentor is almost never a personal coach or a parent figure; she is a person--as flawed and unique as any human--to go to for a specific problem. It’s impossible for one person to have all the answers and a single mentor can’t address all your needs."
