Power Mentoring Program
The purpose of this program is to provide faculty and lecturers with short-term, one-on-one assistance from selected Power Mentors to improve student learning and/or effectiveness on the job.
Power Mentor: Recommended faculty member who has consistently high student evaluations and is willing to mentor a colleague in identified areas. (See list of current Power Mentors.)
Power Mentee: Any faculty or lecturer at Leeward Community College.
- Faculty and lecturers who would like help with a topic, issue, or teaching strategy will request a Power Mentor from a list of potential Power Mentors. If a topic of interest is not listed, please contact the Innovation Center for Teaching & Learning at ext. 483 or by email and we will do our best to accommodate your request.
- Complete the Power Mentor Request form and send to the Innovation Center for Teaching & Learning by email or hard copy.
- The requested Power Mentor will be contacted and within a week the Power Mentor will set up a meeting time with you. Two Uluwehi Café lunch tickets ($7.00 each) will be sent to the Power Mentor for your first meeting. If a Power Mentor is not available, the Innovation Center for Teaching & Learning will contact you to discuss other alternatives.
- At your first meeting (we recommend a 1- to 2- hour meeting), you and your Power Mentor will discuss your issue or topic in depth. You will collaborate to complete a Power Mentoring Plan and set up a follow-up meeting to take place after you have had an opportunity to implement the plan.
- At your follow-up meeting, you and your Power Mentor will discuss the results of your action plan and assess its effectiveness.
- To improve this program, you will be asked to complete the anonymous feedback form that will be sent to you.
