  1. 1. Student Empowerment through Mentoring and Reverse Mentoring -B.V.Raghunandan National Seminar on MEASURES FOR QUALITY ENHANCEMENT AND SUSTENANCE IN HIGHER EDUCATION SDM College of Business Management, October 10, 2014
  2. 2. Student Empowerment • Students are a matrix of bundles of emotion like anger, uncertainty, jealousy, resentment, competition, frustration, disbelief, hatred for the system • It’s a heady mixture of positive and negative energies • Empowerment comes in the form of converting them to responsible citizens of social and individual values
  3. 3. Mentoring • Teachers were mentors originally • Later developments brought in different hues of educational degrees, institutions, universities, teachers and systems • Teachers role is confined to the teaching of subjects (Value education has also became a subject) • Counsellors have no personal interest or involvement in the students • Thus, a Mentor
  4. 4. Complex Family Backgrounds • Leo Tolstoy, in Anna Karenina, "all happy families resemble each other; all tragic families are tragic in their own way” • Unhealthy families are tragic families and complexities peculiar only to themselves • Break-up of joint families produce highly complex and distinct child members • Students from nuclear families generally seek mentoring the most
  5. 5. Mentoring and Reverse Mentoring • Mentoring: the Teacher or any other older person shapes the younger subject • Reverse Mentoring: the process reverses with the younger subject mentors the mentor himself • Reverse Mentoring happens due to immaturity, lack of knowledge, general awareness or smartness in worldly things on the part of the mentor
  6. 6. The Arduous Process of Becoming a Mentor • Being truthful • Courage: Not being afraid of any student or a group of students • Genuine Interest in protecting the interest of students • Not hesitating to punish to bring the erring students into line • Highly knowledgeable and value-based living
  7. 7. A Teacher Transforming into a Mentor • Coverage of curriculum sufficiently and going beyond it with current affairs and developments • Being original in approach • Destroying popular Misconceptions • Having a scientific temperament • Symbolising a rock in display of emotions • Assignments to show them their ignorance and helping them in building up a portfolio
  8. 8. Road-Blocks in Becoming a Mentor • Diplomacy, which is a part of everyone’s nature • Postponement of Problems • Dependence on parents for control • Conflicting concepts • Institutional Interest • The views of Administration
  9. 9. Essentials of Reverse Mentoring • Belief that knowledge is not uni-directional • It is a world in which human knowledge has surpassed human understanding-hence, even illiterate beedi-workers who employ people to read news may possess comprehensive knowledge • Not all the mentors are the best in all qualities • Availability of information and knowledge in the electronic media make people at different levels knowledgeable • Readiness of Mentor to Accept it
  10. 10. Beneficial Impact of Reverse Mentoring • Mentor can save his breath • He can understand the present generation far better • The subject will have a better respect for the mentor • The mentor will become highly knowledgeable in the process -he stands to gain from the experience of his subjects • Mentor can absolve himself of • his misconceptions
  11. 11. THANK YOU
