    Mentoring Relationships in Supervision: Equipment for Addressing Problems of

    Practice in COVID-19 Contexts

    Workshop #4 is being presented on Sunday, February 13th,  2022 from 1:00pm-4:00pm Central Time, $50.


    When educators try to unpack the complexities of supervision/mentoring it all comes down to RELATIONSHIPS! How teacher educators develop productive relationships with their teacher candidate/mentee is the focus of the workshop.  What "strategies" do supervisors/mentors need for developing productive relationships with their novice teachers?  A vision of establishing positive, trusting, and respectful relationship requires attending to developmental needs of the novice teacher:

        • Teachers need to acquire an increasingly complex level of cognitive functioning as they learn teaching across instructional and executive functioning dimensions.
        • Teachers need to possess self-knowledge and the ability to recognize their own implicit biases that can influence their  teaching and interactions with others. 
        • Teachers need to examine their beliefs about teaching and learning through research-based knowledge that connects content and pedagogy.

    Supervisors/mentors can attend to a novice teacher's needs through intentional practices to: uncover their developmental needs; set up communication processes that engage them in reflection and introspection on their practice; and connect their beliefs about teaching and learning to their practices. Participants will be engaged in defining what a productive relationship with a teacher candidate/mentee entails, and will be engaged in trying out protocols and strategies to nurture productive relationships.
