Coaching and Mentoring in Higher Education: A Learning-Centred Approach
Carnell, Eileen; MacDonald, Jacqui; Askew, Susan
Institute of Education - London
This handbook sets out a clear organisational rationale of coaching and mentoring and provides structured activities for self-reflection or groups. It will be particularly suitable for Higher Education institutions which are considering the development of mentoring as part of their effective professional relationships and working practices. This handbook extends everyone's thinking by examining how the practices of coaching and mentoring have explicit links with models of learning. A case study of the learning-centred model that has been successfully piloted at the Institute of Education illustrates these links in practice. The accompanying CD contains printable masters of the activities.
