Are you an experienced and highly capable online instructor, aware of the nuances and complexities of online teaching? Would you like an opportunity to support someone as they venture into online instruction? Or are you venturing into the world of online instruction for the first time? Then the Faculty Engagement subcommittee of the Penn State Online Coordinating Council and the Schreyer Institute For Teaching Excellence want your help to pilot a peer mentoring program for online faculty.
Please consider serving as a mentor during the Spring 2013 semester. Your service would not only assist a new online instructor, but would also help to inform the future of the mentoring program.
A short mentor application is available online at this address: Online Mentoring Program, Mentor Application
Teaching online is a unique experience, and you don't have to "go it alone". If you are teaching online for the first time in Spring 2013, and would like some friendly support from a colleague, tell us a bit about yourself and your course: Online Mentoring Program, Request a Mentor
We hope you will take a few minutes to complete the application(s). You will be notified regarding your participation.
