Abstract

Mentoring relationships to invite higher education faculty to learn educational computing skills on a one-to-one basis are an "optimal match". An optimal match involves a carefully constructed personal learning experience accommodating the inevitable differences in learning. An appropriate match builds connection with the circumstances that learners encounter and the schemata that they assimilate into their professional repertoire. Faculty technology mentorships build trust between participating individuals in order to implement new skills in non-threatening, meaningful ways to build personal knowledge and skills, to integrate new learning in a professional context, and to reflect on the learning process. Results from a specific technology mentoring experience are described in this paper including the perspective of both the mentor and the mentee.
