  6. 6. Two Teaching and Learning Strategies that I identified with most: Strategy 1: Generative Learning Generative learning is defined by Mills as: “process of generating ideas by reorganizing facts and information into more flexible knowledge structures that reveal relationships among ides or by identifying gaps in knowledge or conflicts between ideas.” Pg. 31 Strategy 2: Coaching and Mentoring Coaching and Mentoring is defined by Mills as: Coaching is a partnership among colleagues where they observe one another in practice of their profession and conduct discussions before and after the observation. Mentoring is when an expert/professional is identified to assist with developing/coaching another to improve/enhance his/her skills. Pg. 32
