The aim for the evening was to talk about mentoring. I was given 50 minutes, and tried to use it wisely.
My topic was:
1. What is mentoring
2. What is a mentor program
3. Tools to use
4. What´s in it for me (mentee, mentor and company)
We used some time to get to know the terms and the meening of mentoring, mentee and mentor.
The responce was great and a lot of questions about how we can use mentoring f.ex. in schools. Bec
se in Norway we have a lot of students dropping out at the age 16-18 years old. And they seems to think that mentoring could solve some of that problem.
I think it´s a great idea. A lot of the schools in Europe us mentoring for their students. And I don´t know why the different schools would like to try that.
My hope for the future is that they use the professors more as a mentor. And maybe then the students will stay in school.
