Abstract:

Mentor teaching is a valuable strategy to provide students with the emotional and instrumental support students need to achieve the goal of a college degree. Mentor teaching for students in college helps to feel more connected and engaged in campus. Therefore the present study was planned to assess the effectiveness of mentor teaching on the   academic performance of second year M.B.B.S students in microbiology and to know   the perception of faculty towards mentor teaching. In this study 30 students of second year M.B.B.S students of Malla Reddy Medical College for Women were selected randomly in the subject of microbiology for mentor teaching. Institutional Ethical Clearance was obtained. Mentor teaching was done three times in a week for a period of 5 months. The topic was explained to them in detail. Before teaching the topic a pre-test questionnaire was given. After the mentor teaching a post-test questionnaire was given. Faculty perception regarding mentor teaching was taken by giving a   questionnaire. In my project of 5 months duration I have conducted 3 tests to my mentees. In the first test their average scores were low i.e., 30%.  In the second tests their scores improved to 60% and in the third tests scores improved to 80%. 100% of faculty in the department   of microbiology agreed with the idea of mentor teaching as a good idea. The academic performance of the mentees increased after mentor teaching.
