Mentor Quality Matters: Supporting a Continuum of Teacher Development
The Ohio Standards for the Teaching Profession (OSTP) are the framework for Ohio’s Continuum of Teacher Development through the levels of prelicensure, residency, teaching and leading. Beginning January 18 and ending March 14, 2012, the Southeast Ohio Teacher Development Collaboration (SEOTDC) will offer free online professional development modules to assist cooperating teachers and the school principal. These self-paced modules include an overview of mentoring (i.e.: definitions, mentor qualities, mentoring styles), as well as an overview of Ohio’s Continuum of Teacher Development and its alignment with OSTP. Participants will have the opportunity to communicate via “Blackboard” and interact with other cooperating teachers/mentors, principals and SEOTDC university teacher educators. More information HERE.
