About GIML's Mentorship Program
The goal of the GIML virtual mentoring program is to connect newer MLT practitioners with those who have significant experience incorporating MLT into their teaching practice. A recent pilot study showed that participation is valuable not only for the mentees but also for the mentors, who experience significant growth and reflection on their teaching practice through helping and dialoguing with others.
The program is open to teachers of all tracks/specializations, with the following eligibility requirements:
All communication in this program will happen virtually, including video-chat meetings between mentors/mentees and sharing of electronic files and teaching videos. GIML will use background information to match mentees with appropriate mentors, host an initial informational meeting in the fall, and then check in occasionally throughout the year to make sure things are running smoothly. Otherwise, it is up to mentors and mentees to decide how often they would like to meet.
The GIML Mentorship Program begins a new cycle each September. Check your email and/or GIML social media over the summer for information about this exciting program!
