Much ado about mentoring

Monday, April 12, 2010

Over the past few weeks, some of our Equity Matters content has featured posts exploring the issues behind mentoring in the academy, including a podcast from Minister Faust and pieces about mentoring within one's discipline and  an unconventional mentoring relationship. Along with a post setting out the discussion, these posts culminated in 'Much Ado about Mentoring,' a plenary session at the Federation's annual meeting of the General Assembly. This plenary featured a range of academics who spoke to their own encounters with mentoring, as well as the underlying philosophies.

The full podcast of the plenary is now available - listen as Adelle Blackett (McGill University), Larry Chartrand (University of Ottawa) and James Deaville (Carleton University) present their thoughts in this session moderated by Malinda Smith, VP Equity Issues.
