Abbidin, A. (2012). A Review of Effective Mentoring Practices for Mentees Development. Journal of Studies in Education, 2(1): 72 – 89. doi: http://dx.doi.org/10.5296/jse.v2i1.1226

This article provides a review of the effective practices that can be used to implementing a mentoring program to develop the skills and knowledge of mentees. The author notes that mentoring should be regarded as part of educational training aimed at developing people in different professional settings. Mentoring is thus equated to the process of enhancing self-development, career development, and professional growth of the mentee where bot the mentor and mentee have a role to play.

To achieve an effective outcome of the mentoring program, it must take place within a specific institutional context. Ostensibly, this article describes the mentoring relationship as an invaluable learning activity for new mentees and mentors with experience such as teachers, managers, and administrators.

This article provides an overview of mentoring within the context of academia by reflecting on the coaching and mentoring relationship between the mentor and the mentee. According to the article, the changing Higher Education landscape has made it more difficult for less experienced academics to find individuals who are willing and capable of investing and supporting their professional development. Ostensibly, the article is of the view that mentoring and coaching are avenues of giving mentees psychosocial assistance to be able to deal with role conflict, role ambiguity, and a perceived uncertainty in their workplace. Relying on the processes and outcomes of the case study of academic mentoring/coaching relationship in this article, I can replicate the evidence-based practice in my professional development within my field of professional practice.

The article examines the key insights, tips, and essential strategies that can effectively facilitate fruitful coaching in the workplace. The article is useful in gaining the skills that can be used to embed leadership coaching skills through a leader-coach relationship in the workplace where the managers fully participate. The effectiveness of the coaching strategy is evidenced by the fact that it is becoming part of leadership development initiatives in many organization globally. I can apply these insights and tips in my professional life by developing effective methodologies of embedding and teaching coaching skills in an organization. These insights would thus provide an evidence-based approach of design coaching programs that are solidly aligned to the mission, values, and goals of the organization. I would send emails with coaching tips and skills to create an essential foundation of embedding coaching skills among the managers and executives.

Sibson, L., & Mursell, I. (2010). Mentorship for paramedic practice: a path to assessment. Journal of Paramedic Practice, 2(7), 321-328.

This article provides an accurate path of assessment that can be used to mentor paramedic professionals. The article emphasizes knowledge, learning theories as to the core foundation of assessing students. According to the article, assessment through coaching is an important element of adult-centered learning which enable the mentor to understand the effectiveness of learning among the learners. Using such information, the mentor can identify the most effective pathway of enabling the students to learn and how best to assess the students during their learning process. Using the assessment strategies and the methods highlighted in this article, I plan to replicate the paramedic coaching practice to focus on the knowledge of student assessment. I will specifically focus on the skills and competence of the learners only after understanding their learning modes and methods.

This penultimate article will focus on

knowledge and student assessment. The role

of the mentor will involve at some stage an

assessment of the student’s competence, skills

, and knowledge. Before exploring the concept of

assessment of knowledge and skills, it is worth

taking time to understand the aspect of how

If we understand the important elements

of adult-centered learning, we can then begin

to understand how our students learn and

also, therefore, how best to assess them. In

understanding the various theories of learning,

we can also understand how these learning

theories,domains of learning and concepts

underpin

adult knowledge

This article examines the most effective way of making the most of mentors through an effective mentorship program. The article notes that mentoring is an important determinant of successful professional engagement in the fields of research, medicine, and academic. Unlike the many research articles that focus on mentoring from the perspective of the mentor, this article has chosen to pursue the effectiveness of mentorship by giving guidance to mentees to forge a significant relationship between the mentor and mentee.

This article has particularly applied the corporate concept of “managing up,” to an academic medical environment to promote a successful and effective mentoring to facilitate the mentor’s role. I plan to replicate the concept of mentorship highlighted in this article by taking responsibility for creating a collaborative alliance and being the leader of the mentor and mentee relationship. I plan to facilitate and guide the efforts of the mentor to create a satisfactory mentor-mentee relationship to make it more productive
