Mentor Academy 101 Part 1 and 2 is a virtual four-day event focused on the development of foundational mentor and coaching skills and knowledge. This training is intended for experienced educators who will be supporting the instructional growth and development of novice educators, although the skills transfer to work with veteran educators, too. Topics include understanding the functions of mentoring, facilitating learning-focused conversations, using instructional frameworks to promote growth, conducting observations and providing effective feedback, gathering data, promoting equitable classrooms, and maintaining confidentiality.   

Part 1: August 10 and 11: 9:00am-12:00pm

Part 2: August 12 and 13: 9:00am-12:00pm

Event Notes

Important note: 

1. Register for this event by July 24th at 5:00pm to receive a copy of Mentoring Matters book and printed materials. If you register after this date, you'll receive electronic copies.  

2. This registration is for Part 1-2. Part 3 is typically held 6-8 weeks later so participants have opportunities to practice the skills between sessions. To complete the full academy, you need to attend all three parts. The link for Part 3 registration will be posted on the website as soon as it becomes available.

3. BEST’s on-line events are interactive training, not webinars. We ask participants to use video when possible so that others can see and interact with them. It is possible to call in and join without video, if necessary. In all cases, participants are asked to participate in all activities via audio. 


Other: Zoom links will be sent to registered participants prior to the event.
