GEC Faculty FAQ

Q: What do I need to do regarding this new “Mentor Session” quality checking policy?

A: As you’ve already known, our research seminars include sessions from professors, mentors and TAs. Mentor session is an essential component to the program, and it is designed to offer students more support throughout the program. Mentors will provide supplementary contents to help our students deepen their understandings of the course. Thus, it is important that our instructors and mentors are on the same page, and are aware of each other’s objectives. We ask all our mentors to complete their course plans before the start of each program, and share their plans with you. It would be great if you could review the plan from our mentors, and check if it is consistent with your teaching plan. This step of quality control would maximize the benefits to our students and encourage regular communications between our mentors and instructors.
