First of all, thank you for agreeing to act as a mentor on the Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (TLHE) Programme.
Mentor support is an important dimension of the programme, and vital to helping participants map generic ideas onto local contexts, cultures and practices and to identify features of their discipline that may be unique.
Experience shows that in departments where mentor support is a strong part of the culture, participants derive maximum benefit from the programme and generally organise their programme-related activities better.
Mentor support in the development of others is also an important criteria in the University's progression and promotions framework. The TLHE programme provides a tangible way of evidencing this aspect of University citizenship.
This section of the website is for the support and development of mentors, and your suggestions and contributions are welcomed.
