Peer Mentoring and Professional Development: Mentor Perspectives in Teacher Education

May 12, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm


This event is part of the 2022 Celebrate Learning Week: https://celebratelearning.ubc.ca/events/2022-events/

The purpose of this panel is to discuss how peer mentorship has supported our growth as educational professionals beyond our roles as graduate students in the Faculty of Education. We will discuss how mentorship has encouraged us to reflect upon our practices as teachers and future academics. Talking points include how peer mentor tasks and roles have developed our knowledge regarding teaching and learning as well as amplified our perspectives about the BC Curriculum as an object of research. In this sense, the panel invites current and previous peer mentors to speak about their experiences and connections with teaching, learning, and research.
