Using a Reflective Tool for Online Mentoring


"We present two tools developed for supporting teachers in the classroom following a content and pedagogy focused professional development program. The first tool is geared to face-to-face observations, while the second is a reflective tool geared for online or hybrid mentoring. These tools were employed in a Freshman Physics PD and leadership development program. We will present the tools and demonstrate a follow-up conversation between a mentor and a mentee who used the reflective tool for online mentoring. Attendees will be asked to comment on the tool and discuss possible generalizations of the tool for other projects. Results of the research conducted on the two tools will be presented."
