Guidance on Mentoring: What is Mentoring?

This brief guide focuses on defining different aspects of mentoring, whether for an individual or for a team, and includes selected reference resources. It is critical that the mentee and mentor both approach their interaction with the same understanding of the nature and scope of the advising that will be offered. This brief guide can serve as a reference for both parties in arriving at that mutual understanding.
Before delving into mentoring, it’s important to be aware that sometimes the terms “mentoring” and “coaching” are used interchangeably despite important differences between them. There are many resources on mentoring and coaching – and almost as many different definitions for each as well as the similarities and overlap between the two (such as shown in the articles on coaching in the resource list below).Also, most people agree that mentoring is NOT training although a mentor or coach may recommend that a mentee obtain additional training.

Virtual Conference Attendance Worked: I was Amazed at How Much I Learned!

I suddenly found myself able to attend the American Evaluation Association (AEA) annual conference virtually because I had a relatively open schedule during the conference days of Oct. 31-November 3, 2018 (Wednesday afternoon-Saturday afternoon). I didn’t know until close to the conference time that AEA would have virtual access – and not just to the Opening Plenary.
Thanks, AEA, for the free and excellent streaming access to Presidential Strand sessions!
So I began attending the virtual sessions. And I was deliberate and diligent in engaging with the conference Twitter hashtag #Eval18 (and other variations).
By the 2nd day afternoon, I realized what a full picture I was getting of the conference even though I wasn’t there. Attending tweeters were keeping us updated on all aspects of the conference. And I found myself reading threads and going back to the program abstracts to learn more about sessions that weren’t streamed but whose content impressed an attendee enough to write a tweet.
