The primary aim of the module (which builds on the previous Master course Professional development & Learning) is to understand, be able to articulate, and add to current debates on mentoring theory and practice. This includes critical evaluation of current research in mentoring and the underpinning meta-theoretical assumptions which underpin the various approaches.
A secondary aim of the module is to enable students to critically examine a variety of approaches to mentoring in order to inform one’s own mentoring position.
The objectives of the course are to:
Develop critical awareness and understanding of the theory and practice of mentoring and coaching in a range of ‘live’ settings, with particular relevance to education (achievement levels 1-4);
Appreciate the effects, advantages and disadvantages of the various applications of mentoring and coaching skills in a range of contexts (3);
Acquire and practise the skills of mentoring and coaching (4);
Create opportunities for participants to evaluate critically the relevant literature (5, 6);
Enable participants to develop an understanding of the links and tensions between theory and practice (10-12);
Appreciate the complex moral dimensions of mentoring and coaching.(16-19).
The formulated general Master achievement levels are applicable to this course in various degrees.
