Ontario Ministry of Education eBook contains 19 practical mentoring modules to support mentors as they support their colleagues.
It’s unlikely that any teacher has ever had a truly successful career without a mentor being involved at some point along the way. Mentoring is a highly complex activity that involves two professional teachers in a mutually supportive and symbiotic relationship. While most people would think the greater benefits accrue to the mentee, experience has clearly demonstrated that mentoring also furthers the educational and professional development of the mentor.
We know that this professional dialogue does not come easily; it requires specific skills and training. This section of our website features resources that we believe can enhance the skill set of mentors and help mentees realize the maximum value from their special opportunity.
