Evidence from recent cross-disciplinary research has confirmed that (a) the process of mentorship is crucial to the learning and development of prospective practitioners in all fields across the humanities, social and physical sciences, and the professions; and (b) the effectiveness of mentorship practice may be hampered by difficulties that arise within mentor/protégé interrelationships and interactions.
As a result of these findings, the presenter has co-developed, researched, and refined a mentoring model called “Adaptive Mentorship”© (AM), which can be applied by persons in mentorship positions in any educational/training program across the disciplines. The purpose of this workshop is to acquaint attendees from all the humanities with the AM model in order to enhance the overall effectiveness of their mentoring practice in their respective contexts. Learning to apply AM may also help them to reduce or eliminate interpersonal conflicts that inevitably arise within mentor/protégé relationships.
Workshop attendees will: (a) understand the AM model, its rationale, and research results; (b) practice applying it; and (c) decide whether or not to accept the presenter’s invitation to implement the AM model and assess its impact.
Participants from all the humanities will be invited to engage in paired-dialogue, whole-group conversation, and experiential learning to examine the AM model and its application. As a result, they will determine if/how they might adopt or adapt the model in their own mentorship practice within their respective disciplines.
