What is an eMentor? eMentors are instructors recognized for their experience in teaching with technology. These individuals work with ET@MO to mentor instructors new to or interested in eLearning and how to do it right. eMentors serve for a term of three years.

As part of this group, the eMentors are responsible for:

  • Contributing to a broader discourse on campus eLearning as a member of ET@MO’s Advisory Board
  • Sharing their experience and expertise with colleagues by presenting at ET@MO-sponsored seminars and the annual Celebration of Teaching conference
  • Becoming a certified course peer reviewer by completing the Quality Matters Course and workshop (paid for by ET@MO)
  • Conducting Quality Course reviews on a team of reviewers – up to 5 per year
  • Contributing thoughts about teaching practice, technology, trends, and other e-learning issues when needs arise.
  • Providing an annual summary of how their professional development funds are used
  • Mentoring instructors new to teaching with technology or who would like some additional assistance with their teaching practice.

A reward for becoming an eMentor is the ability to receive $2,000 per year for a three year commitment, to be used for professional development or equipment to enhance teaching. $1,000 will be transferred in February and the second $1,000 in September pending satisfactory performance. We are very excited about this program, and we think it will be very helpful for MU faculty. Please let me know if you have any questions.

If you have questions about this process, please contact Kelly Holtkamp at
