Mentoring for Effective Teaching

The Mentoring Model

Hudson’s Mentoring Model

The Mentoring for Effective Teaching (MET) professional development program is underpinned by Hudson’s Mentoring Model (2004, 2007) noted below.  The initial development of the model was informed by the literature and feedback from over 300 preservice teachers across nine universities in Australia.  This model has been further substantiated with over 100 mentors and nearly 1,000 mentees. This five-factor mentoring model includes:

  • The mentor’s Personal Attributes for facilitating the mentoring process
  • Mentoring about the essential education System Requirements
  • The mentor’s Pedagogical Knowledge
  • The mentor’s Modelling of teaching practices, and
  • Quality Feedback provided by the mentor

TEDD has been made possible through funding from the Australian Government (DEEWR) and the commitment and dedication of staff and students from Queensland University of Technology (QUT), Brisbane North Institute of TAFE (BNIT), and Education Queensland school executives and teachers.
