Abstract

Faculty mentoring is a process/activity that can occur early, mid-career, or even when administrators are returning to a teaching role. Mentoring can take on numerous forms to include classroom observation, discussions on content within a course, formal/informal review of course content, review of individual lesson notes, and the sharing of lesson notes, homework, exams, design problems, syllabus, and study guides or a portion of any listed before. This paper presents the results of one faculty member completing a combination of the above as a form of mentoring with a new faculty member, a lecturer, and two mid-term faculty. The analysis examines student assessments and faculty reflections on the mentoring process and how it improved their current methods to prepare and then teach follow-on courses.
