Mid-Ohio Educational Service Center is proud to host the Ohio Resident Educator Mentor Training on August 18 and 25, which will be held virtually. This training provides educators with opportunities to reflect on how their instruction and assessment practices impact student learning. This system of support includes working with a state-certified mentor.
This is a hybrid training, requiring participants to access both the ODE Learning Management System and the Zoom meetings held by the Mid-Ohio ESC. In order to be certified as a Resident Educator mentor, participants will engage in eight hours of self-guided online work over a two-week period and participate in two 2-hour Zoom meetings. An optional 60-minute virtual orientation meeting will be held on August 11th at 4:00 p.m. Access information will be forwarded to all participants in an email with other course materials and information.
The first day introduces participants to mentoring in Ohio’s Resident Educator Program, with particular emphasis on the Mentor/Resident Educator relationship. During the second day, educators are introduced to first year curricular responsibilities of instructional mentors and Resident Educators in Ohio’s Resident Educator Program. Both days of training will start at 4:00 p.m. and end at 6:00 p.m.
The training will be conducted by ODE Resident Educator Credentialed Trainers Linda Williams and Lisa Kuhar. Interested teachers can sign up via OH/ID: Trainings and Registration on the Ohio Department of Education website. The cost is $125. Anyone with questions about registration can email Linda Williams at [email protected] for help. Participants must also email their name and training dates to Ms. Williams in order to receive important information regarding online work that is required prior to the first web-meeting date.
