> WHEN? Tuesday, May 14th, 6:30-8:30p
> WHERE? Cafe Allegro, 40th and University Ave.,

> Discussion Article: (this is a long
> Professional development has surfaced a few
> times as a potential topic
> for a reading group meeting. This topic has
> many sub-topics making it
> prickly to approach. (Okay, shoot me for
> mentioning a hierarchy.)
> Recently, however, one of those sub-topics,
> "mentoring", is appearing
> more frequently in conversations and articles.
> (Or does it just seem to
> be more frequent because Dana recruited Melissa
> and I to be mentors at
> the iSchool at the University of Washington.)
> Believe ourselves to be decent researchers we
> began searching the web.
> We could not find a free web-based resource
> outlining mentoring in
> general terms with suggestions for mentors and
> mentees. We did find
> several lists of mentoring resources available
> offline, all yours at an
> additional cost of either money from your
> pocket or time to go to your
> library and photocopy. In searching we did
> learn a bit. There is both
> formal and informal mentoring. A lot of formal
> mentoring programs exist
> for child/adult, student/teacher and new
> teacher/experienced teacher.
> Plus, formal mentoring programs seem to be on
> the rise in the corporate
> setting. Or, consultants with websites and
> mentoring services are
> trying very hard to convince us of that.
> Absent the perfect resource we settled on a
> handful of items freely
> accessible to try to convey mentoring, both in
> a formal sense and what
> may be out there stirring things up.
> For the meeting cruise through these sites.
> All are fairly short.
