As a mentor for new faculty members here at the University, I have the opportunity to help newly trained faculty members teach their first online class, which is a lot of fun and very rewarding. I find that new faculty members are very eager to get off on the right foot just like I know new employees are when starting a new job. I ask the class if you think classroom style training or mentoring is more valuable and effective? This can be a tough question to answer because there is a number of positive elements of both. Which situation would you implement as an HR manager? Or would you use a combination of the two and why? Do you think that a combination of these two will help in retaining employees?
