2018-2019 Faculty Mentor
New undergraduate online instructors participate in the Online Instructor Mentoring Program (OIMP) where they receive one-on-one peer mentoring throughout their first term teaching. Both adjunct and full time faculty teaching online undergraduate courses are welcomed into the program. Faculty mentors are volunteers and work closely with a lead mentor. As the OIMP is discipline oriented, mentors serve in the specific discipline in which they teach when possible. Course-specific mentoring is ideal. This program is virtual, so location is not a factor. Mentors are located across the country. The OIMP provides opportunities to the faculty mentors for professional development including virtual sessions where mentors can connect and ask questions to peers, lead faculty mentors, and guest experts. Faculty mentors are enrolled in PDL751, a resource center and forum area for mentors.
