This session examines how the new TQS impacts teacher development. Its goal is to bring together existing and prospective mentor teachers in a way that examines how mentoring a student teacher is an opportunity to build teacher knowledge and capacity within the new TQS by building familiarity, comfort, and dialogue around the six competencies. Field experience associates from the University of Alberta will provide the audience with information and self-reflection opportunities regarding: Reasons to be a mentor teacher and how this can create a better understanding of the new TQS and your practice; Suggestions, and anecdotes of how to capture evidence of meeting the indicators of the TQS; What student teachers can offer mentor teachers in meeting the indicators of the new TQS, particularly competency 5.
