A Quick and Handy Guide to Educational Mentoring. A Product of a 310 Special Demonstration Training Project 1982-83, "Training Mentors as Educational Counselors of Adult Learners."
Developed in two training sessions involving key personnel from business, industry, and community agencies who counsel employees or clients about career changes, this handbook is intended to help persons who are responsible for guiding adults through educational or career changes. The guide is organized into 11 sections. Topics covered by these sections are the following: definition of educational mentoring, motivating learning and growth of adults, barriers to change that managers create or reinforce, dimensions of educational brokering in the mentor role, factors which enable a mentor to be helpful, communications skills a mentor uses, barriers to effective networking as a mentor, recognizing a mentor from the adult's point of view, issuing invitations to learning and growth, communication blocks, and contracting for action. A list of the persons who attended the mentoring workshops and a guide to resources for educational mentoring complete the handbook. (KC)
