    Designing a workplace project
    Use of online networks for developing understanding of mentoring
    An important part of this subject will be the online interaction between participants. Therefore it is important that
    students have access to a computer and the Internet. A number of discussion forums will be run on UTSOnline,
    typically for a fortnight each. These forums will be part of the learning environment for this subject. Consequently,
    participants are required to contribute toa number of discussion forums as specified below, either by responding to a
    contribution or by initiating a new thread. This task is particularly designed to meet outcomes 4 and 5, although the
    discussions will also address all the other outcomes. Forum contributions are not graded but the minimum level of
    contribution outlined below is required in order to complete the subject. Optimum length: Each posting should be
    about 1-2 paragraphs in length (no more than 300 words). Courteous and friendly interactions are expected. Number
    of contributions:All participants are expected to contribute to the first forum so that other participants may get to know
    them. You are then expected to contribute to a minimum of two other forums from the list below and also
    summarisethe main points arising in a forum in which you have not participated as a discussant, and post this in the
    allocated area. Note: Your choice of the above three forums does not preclude you from contributing to other forums
    as desired.
    Topics of forums: The following are the proposed forums for discussion. However, these may be subject to change
    if participants propose other discussion forums or other issues develop.
    Introductory forum: areas of interest (all participants to post) 1.
    Personal responses to the mentoring literature. 2.
    What does mentoring look like in my context? 3.
    Problematic aspects of mentoring. 4.
    Implementation issues. 5.
    Reflections on learning about mentoring. 6.

    This is not a distance subject.
    This subject is assessed through coursework (5000 words) - there is no exam component. There are two main
    assessment tasks. The first is a critique of the literature and the second a practical research project. A proposal for
    this project has to be submitted beforehand and contributions to an on-line discussion forums are part of the
    assessment for this subject.
    Full attendance at the two one day workshops are a compulsory element of this Block subject. It is not possible to

    Task: Participants are required to select three readings from the reader, one from each of the first three
    sections, and write a critique of each of these three readings. For each reading
    Provide a brief overall rationale for your choice of readings. This should highlight thematic
    similarities or significant contrasts between the readings. You must indicate why these three
    particular readings were chosen and are relevant to you and your context.
    Point out what you consider to be the main issues raised in each reading and discuss their
    relevance to you as a mentor or potential mentor.
    critique the arguments put forward in each reading. Are they valid and why? Are they
    questionable and if so how?
    The final paragraphs of the assignment should include a synthesis of your major findings from
    the three readings, the insights gained from your analysis and indicate the implications for your
    role as a mentor in your context.
    Assessment item 2: Mentoring in practice
    Weight: 60%
    Due: 07 June
    Length: Proposal: 500 words. Assignment: 2,500 words
    Task: This assessment task allows students to choose an area of relevance and interest in relation to
    mentoring that they would like to research and develop further. The focus of this assignment is on the
    practical application of some of the theoretical material that was critiqued the first assignment as well as
    the readings provided in the subject and other readings researched by students. Given the relatively
    short time available and the variety of situations in which people are working, it may not be possible to
    implement a real life project. A range of options will be discussed in the March workshop.
    This assignment has two components:
    the submission of a assignment proposal (April 30th). This proposal should: 1.
    provide a rationale for the mentoring project to be developed
    ensure there is a clear focus to the mentoring project and that it is compatible with the constraints of
    the assignment word count
    demonstrate how it is relevant to your professional development in your particular context
    provide an outline of how the assignment will be structured
    indicate what mentoring theory will be used to provide a framework for the project
    highlight the links between theory and practice in the project.
    Once the proposal has been approved it will provide the basis for the assignment. Any changes to the
    proposal after it has been approved must be submitted to the marking tutor for further approval.
    2. the submission of the assignment relating to 'Mentoring in Practice' as outlined in the
    approved proposal.
