Coaching and Mentoring: Learning with and from Others
Learners participating in this web-based course will examine how individuals can purposefully learn with, and from, others. Within a conception of mentoring as a continuum of supportive relationships ranging from role modeling, coaching, advising, supervising, and mentoring, participants will examine and differentiate these types of learning activities, and in particular, coaching and mentoring relationships. Within the framework of the learning objectives and course modules listed below, learners will examine coaching and mentoring from a triad of perspectives: as a protégé, as a mentor, and in light of environmental features of their respective organizations. Learners will use a variety of information resources, worksheets, and tools to apply new learning to their own situations present and future.
