Partners in Pedagogy

Are you interested in mentoring to foster your development as a teacher?
Would you be willing to serve as a mentor for others interested in pedagogy?

TCNJ’s Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) is launching a new campus-wide mentoring program for all full-time faculty and librarians. Led by Liz Borland, Professor of Sociology and SoTL Faculty Fellow, the Partners in Pedagogy Program will create the matches, provide support and resources, and organize activities for mentors and mentees.

Mentoring can be helpful to teachers at all career stages. Partners in Pedagogy offers two types of mentoring matches, both focused on pedagogy:

  • Traditional pairs: 1-on-1 mentoring with one MENTEE and one MENTOR
  • Peer mentoring: 3-4 person PEER CIRCLES to offer mutual mentoring and support

All pairs and mentoring circles will meet at their mutual convenience monthly in Spring ‘23 following an online orientation/training in January. Participants may check out a Get-It Card to “treat” their mentee, mentor, or peer circle to lunch or coffee on campus once a month.

While the Partners in Pedagogy Mentoring Program is sponsored by CETL, it is NOT part of any personnel decision-making. The program is designed to complement, but not replace, existing departmental mentoring. Mentoring matches will be made outside department boundaries but aligned with individual interests and needs.

Sign up to participate by completing this Google form, which should take less than 3 minutes. It includes questions designed to facilitate matching based on areas of interest/expertise.

If you have any questions, please contact Liz Borland.
