A Peer-to-Peer Mentoring Program

This page includes a Survey of Mentoring Topics. Please take a moment to review the list.  If you are interested in serving as a mentor and conversing with others about the topic(s), or if you have a topic of interest which is not listed, include it and sign your name next to the area(s) of expertise.  Please complete the survey by Friday, September 20th.


The way Colleagues, Coffee and Conversations will work is once mentors are identified; the list will be posted to the BW Faculty Center Website.  The list will serve as a directory, and if any topic appears interesting, faculty may contact one or more of the mentors.  Informal conversations over coffee at the Cyber-Café in the Union, or Starbucks at University Market, Berea may be arranged based on mutual schedules, and the cost of the coffee will be covered by the Faculty Center!  Once our directory is complete and posted, the logistics for securing coffee coupons and making contacts with peer mentors will be announced.

In the meantime, mentors must be secured.   


Please help by completing the survey by Friday, September 20. 

When:  November 21-23, 2019

Where:  Miami University - Oxford, OH


The Conference provides a scholarly forum for discussion about all areas affecting teaching and learning, and gives participants the opportunity to share proven, innovative pedagogies and thoughtful, inspirational insights about teaching.
