Mentoring Professional Learning Opportunities

Mentoring Program Beginning Teacher Mentor and Beginning Administrator Mentor Workshops

The Oregon Department of Education has developed the NEW Oregon Mentoring Program Beginning Teacher Mentor and Beginning Administrator Mentor professional learning workshops. These professional learning workshops are developed from evidence-based instructional mentoring research. Both the New Beginning Teacher Mentor and New Beginning Administrator Mentor professional learning workshops have accompanying tools, protocols, and resources that will be introduced, practiced and used throughout the workshops and supported through monthly forums. The professional learning is designed to ensure that mentors are ready to support beginning teachers and beginning administrators to advance their teaching/leading practice and increase student learning and growth.

These workshops are designed for:

  • new mentors
  • experienced mentors
  • Professional Learning facilitators

Participants will receive professional learning that will support the development and refinement of their instructional mentoring skills, abilities and knowledge. These workshops have been developed with a Train-the-Trainer model in mind.

Workshop Materials

For those mentoring for the first time, the work group has developed Kick-Start modules that can be completed individually online or as an In-Person workshop. The Kick-Start modules are intended to support new beginning teacher mentors and new beginning administrator mentors in getting started.
