Teaching and Learning
How mentors can apply learning theory to effectively remove any barriers to learning held by their mentees is the focus of this course.
During this course, you will follow the story of Aaliyah, a student who is having a hard time at school. At each stage, we take you through a further stage of Aaliyah’s experience, and then ask you questions. In order to answer these questions, you will have research to do. In each case we have provided links to a range of articles and websites, which are accessed using the “Materials” tab. You will see this tab above the scenario details, and above the assessment questions.
By the end of this course you will be able to:
- Make learning relevant for mentees within the context of their specific educational journey
- Use teaching and learning theory to motivate learners and develop their self regulatory skills
- Include relevant learning theory within their mentoring practice to help mentees become independent lifelong learners
