Faculty Mentoring In An Updside-Down World
Covid-19 turned college teaching upside down. Subsequent pedagogical and technological changes moved from a 3D world to an almost exclusively a 2D world, dealing with students on a screen only. Newer faculty, having grown up in the digital and internet world, generally are more comfortable than many experienced faculty in this upside-down world, and often more comfortable address emerging student needs than more experienced faculty may be. As a result, newer faculty members mentor experienced faculty navigating, a reversal of the traditional faculty mentoring roles. We explore taking advantage of this new mentoring dynamic from both newer and experienced perspectives.
