Practical, convenient, and affordable right online.
Monday Morning Mentor delivers one of our popular Magna 20-Minute Mentor online programs each week of the school year – 16 in the fall, 16 in the spring, 32 weeks in all.
The Monday Morning Mentor is available in four program collections.
The Monday Morning Mentor traditional collection packs an impressive amount of practical information into a fast, focused format that covers traditional & online teaching as well as administrative issues. Each video is brief enough to fit busy schedules, but long enough to deliver valuable, actionable content.
New Teachers Collection
You enter the classroom as a subject-matter expert—but not necessarily as a teaching expert. You face the daunting prospect of quickly getting up to speed on teaching’s myriad responsibilities.
To compound the challenge, formal training is often scarce or spotty at best.
What are you to do, then, to acquire the skills and knowledge necessary for classroom success?
This collection of 20-Minute Mentors provides a wealth of both research-driven and classroom-tested best practices to help you develop the knowledge and skills required to run a successful classroom.
Online Teaching Collection
Whether you’re preparing to teach your first online course or seeking to upgrade your current offerings, the Monday Morning Mentor Online Teaching Collection is the go-to resource you’ve been looking for.
Good teaching is good teaching, but the key indicators and most effective techniques change when you shift to an online environment. This collection will give you insights you can implement immediately to improve online course design and promote student engagement. You’ll learn how to connect with students, enhance student learning, and address common problems in distance education.
Academic Leaders Collection
The demands made on leaders at academic institutions are possibly greater than they've ever been.
Critical issues come across your desk every day, requiring you to respond.
Whether you head a department, manage an administrative position, or occupy the president's chair, it's up to you to make the tough calls and sometimes blaze a new path for your school.
