OLC Webinar: Online Mentoring for Faculty and Students: Building a Community of Support

Since UNTHSC is a  member of the Online Learning Consortium, OLC webinars are available to UNTHSC faculty and staff at no charge. If you do not already have an OLC account, please create one with your UNTHSC email.

This session will provide insights into mentoring for faculty and students in online education programs, or for those considering a more traditional mentoring program delivered predominantly online. The presenters will discuss a variety of faculty and student mentoring programs for higher education, along with relevant best practices and examples of effective and successful implementation. This webinar will highlight the rationale for mentoring, characteristics of effective mentors and mentees, how to structure or organize programs, and will detail the core elements for setting up and running online mentoring programs. This presentation is largely based on the presenters’ book “Best Practices for Mentoring in Online Programs: Supporting Faculty and Students in Higher Education (2022)” as part of Routledge’s Best Practices in Online Teaching and Learning series.
