Project Manager, Carmen Weaver, had the opportunity to share the Memphis TLINC project at the AECT International Convention in Orlando, Florida. Ms. Weaver presented background on the importance of teacher mentoring for retention and then discussed the current efforts at the University of Memphis. Many people from different parts of the country and with many different backgrounds attended the session. Many attendees were very interested in the process of obtaining mentors for student teachers and actively facilitating online discussions. While the Memphis TLINC project is ongoing, Ms. Weaver hopes to have more data to support her observations at next year’s convention.
