Mentoring Portfolio: Creating a Comprehensive Reflection of the Practice of Mentoring
If one were to conduct a Google search for the term “mentoring portfolio (MP),” one would receive results that reflect a variety of ideas about what is considered a MP and approaches to developing such a document. In this workshop, the presenters will introduce a different idea of what is a MP and how to develop one. The concept for the MP presented here is closely modeled after the Educational Developer’s Portfolio (EDP), which was designed by a diverse group of educational developers in Canada. The EDP is a “tool used to articulate, reflect upon, and provide evidence of an educational developer’s beliefs, values, ethical principles, practices, approaches, development, and impact.” Like an EDP, a MP is intended to be a carefully assembled collection of evidence integrated with thoughtful reflection that provides a comprehensive representation of the creator’s mentoring experience. The MP can be used not only as tool for personal growth or career advancement, but can also serve as a foundation for the mentoring plans that are often required as a part of the proposals submitted to many funding agencies. Virtually anyone can develop a MP based on any type of mentoring relationship or context.
