Sample text

For example, you can advise that at the end of the lecture you would like slips of paper or Post-it™ notes with written questions (with students’ names, or anonymously if they prefer) to be passed forward to you, and that you will deal with these at the beginning of the next large-group session. 3 Look for the frequently asked questions. When armed with a set of questions collected as above, you can expect that there will be considerable overlaps between questions. It’s worth finding the three most common questions and preparing a question–answer slide or handout so that students are able to capture your answers to the main questions.

Other mentors may need to feel that they are investing in people, and that their mentoring work is evidence of this. 6 Remember that mentors may need some training. If you are in a position to arrange a ‘supply’ of potential mentors (for example, if you can enlist some third-year students to mentor first-year students), it can be worthwhile to arrange a mentor training workshop, helping mentors to work out the sorts of things they can help with, and also when not to try to help (such as with those personal problems that could need expert help).
