Transcript – August 18, 2016: Mentoring and Learning

#lrnchat is an online chat over the social messaging service Twitter. It is held on Thursdays at 8:30-9:30pm ET/5:30-6:30pm PT. Participants are people interested in the topic of learning from one another and who want to discuss how to help other people learn in formal, informal, social and mobile ways. We aim to steer clear of topics that are more “training department” oriented and focus on how people learn, what they learn, and what we’re learning.  If you an idea for a topic that you would like to suggest for #lrnchat, please feel free to reach out to any of the Chat Hosts.

This Week’s Questions

  • What benefits from mentoring have you seen?
  • What makes a good mentoring experience?
  • When does mentoring make sense (and when not)?
  • What would you look for in a mentor?
  • How can we develop better mentoring?
  • Do mentors need to be experts? Why or why not?

8:49 PM urbie #lrnchat A2b Oh yeah.. well defined (in pictures) expectations between the mentor and mentee.
8:49 PM TejasTPatel @perrinia @JaneBozarth I always think that mentor assists in “what” and the “why” process more than the “how”. #lrnchat
8:49 PM write2tg .@JaneBozarth That’s a very useful skill! My mentors have helped me see the big picture too #lrnchat
8:49 PM ChadSLowry A2) For the mentor, it shouldn’t feel like rote work; it should be a natural sharing of their experience and insight. #lrnchat

8:54 PM The_NthDegree When my first mentor died a few years back I was devastated by it – felt like I’d lost a family member.. & he was 10,000 miles away #lrnchat
8:54 PM eLearninCyclops RT @lrnchat Q 3) When does mentoring make sense (and when not)? #lrnchat
8:54 PM kelly_smith01 The mentor must show his/her work – the mentee must show his/her work #lrnchat
8:54 PM kelly_smith01 RT @lrnchat: Q 3) When does mentoring make sense (and when not)? #lrnchat

8:55 PM urbie RT @lrnchat: Q 3) When does mentoring make sense (and when not)? #lrnchat
8:55 PM JeremyDBond @odguru @write2tg any more than therapists are supposed to be. #lrnchat

8:55 PM write2tg RT @lrnchat: Q 3) When does mentoring make sense (and when not)? #lrnchat

8:56 PM kregerck RT @Tracy_Parish: A2) I’ve found a Mentor sometimes is required to become and advocate for the mentee. Assist in “opening doors”. #lrnchat
8:56 PM DrJessupS A3) When there is information to be shared and both people are invested in the sharing process. #lrnchat
8:56 PM urbie #lrnchat A3a Mentoring makes sense when all parties involved are motivated to make it work.
8:56 PM The_NthDegree A3 Mentoring doesn’t make sense went there is clearly a lack of respect between the two – either way I guess #lrnchat
8:56 PM TejasTPatel A3) Mentoring works when the mentee really wants it and you can commit yourself to it selflessly . #lrnchat
8:56 PM airlieplane I’m feeling superunderqualified to participate today… I’ve neither mentored nor menteed. #lrnchat
8:57 PM kelly_smith01 Q3) A mentor has limited value when tasks/job is 100% new #lrnchat
8:57 PM JD_Dillon A3) Makes less sense for critical timely needs and simple knowledge-based topics #lrnchat
8:57 PM ChadSLowry @The_NthDegree Agree with that. Needs to be a mutual decision. #lrnchat
8:57 PM urbie #lrnchat A3b Mentoring doesn’t make sense when success criteria is variable (depending on which mentor one gets)..

8:57 PM KatieStroudPro Well, here I am, but Twitter is having trouble loading…#lrnchat

8:58 PM TejasTPatel @airlieplane what an excellent time to pick up some basics then. #lrnchat
8:58 PM The_NthDegree A3 mentor and line manager is usually a bad mix – although my first mentor started out as a great manager in my first teaching job #lrnchat

8:58 PM JeremyDBond @airlieplane being underqualified is why I’m here, to learn. #lrnchat
8:58 PM LeighMires I really don’t see mentoring as a one directional relationship. Mentoring makes sense when both parties are mutually engaged. #lrnchat
8:58 PM write2tg .@jyoti__gupta But that’s ok. The mentor should know what mentee seeks to know. The mentor certainly can’t know it all. #lrnchat
8:58 PM nsulla How about some videos:
