I developed a “Mentor Teacher Project” in 2009-2010, which ran again in 2011-12, and is scheduled for 2013-14. In this project, each student in the Deaf Education is paired with an experienced mentor teacher of the deaf, and follows a deaf child on the teacher’s caseload across one school year. UBC provides the structure for the observations and mentorship. It has become a popular UBC-Professional Community-Student liason. Mentors have been located throughout BC and across the country.
In the student's home community, in locations throughout Canada and the U.S.
Began 2009, runs every 2 years
