Historical[ edit ] William Blake’s watercolor of “Age teaching youth”, a Romantic representation of mentorship. Blake represented this type of relationship in many of his works, including the illustrations of his Songs of Innocence. The original object is currently held by Tate Britain  The roots of the practice are lost in antiquity. The word itself was inspired by the character of Mentor in Homer ‘s Odyssey. Though the actual Mentor in the story is a somewhat ineffective old man, the goddess Athena takes on his appearance in order to guide young Telemachus in his time of difficulty. Historically significant systems of mentorship include the guru—disciple tradition practiced in Hinduism and Buddhism , Elders , the discipleship system practiced by Rabbinical Judaism and the Christian church, and apprenticing under the medieval guild system.
In this context of changing and challenging market requirements, Gas Insulated Substation GIS has found a broad range of applications in power systems for more than two decades because of its high reliability, easy maintenance and small ground space requirement etc. SF6 has been of considerable technological interest as an insulation medium in GIS because of its superior insulating properties, high dielectric strength at relatively low pressure and its thermal and chemical stability.
SF6 is generally found to be very sensitive to field perturbations such as those caused by conductor surface imperfections and by conducting particle contaminants. The presence of contamination can therefore be a problem with gas insulated substations operating at high fields. If the effects of these particles could be eliminated, then this would improve the reliability of compressed gas insulated substation. It would also offer the possibility of operating at higher fields to affect a potential reduction in the GIS size with subsequent savings in the cost of manufacture and installation.

February 21, I want to start the education part of my blog with one of my very favorite teaching strategies. I have found it especially effective with 9th graders. Give students various questions about to ponder and write about on a particular topic. This can be done as a journaling or warm up excercise or can be given as homework. Once each students has been given ample time to write their own answers to each question, you will start the speed dating component.
Have students take their paper with their answers on it around with them. Sit students with a partner, facing each other across a desk. Much like one would see with speed dating. When you tell them to go, the students will discuss only the first question with their first partner. Give them about one minute to do so. After a minute has passed, have one line of students stay put and have the other line move one seat down to a new partner.
With their new partner, they will have one minute to discuss 2 and so on down until all questions have been discussed for a minute, each with a different person. After all questions have been discussed, debrief as a class. Discuss each questions and what new insights were offered on their dates.

It may help to start this section on methods you can use to change behaviors by offering a definition of behavior. A behavior is something that you do; some action that you take. Conventionally, a behavior is something that you act out physically, such as taking a walk, or smoking a cigarette, or rolling your eyes when your spouse is complaining. However, behaviors can be subtle, non-physical things too.

Thursday, October 17, Speed-dating Speaking Activity! It’s been a busy one for me, and I’ve gotten a little behind in my blogging This one actually was inspired by my principal, who mentioned it in passing in one of our departmental meetings. I divided my class into groups of 2. To make it more fun, they had a simple costume to wear as well How old are you? When is your birthday?. I used a timer, and the interviewers had a certain number of seconds to ask their questions.
When the timer went off, the interviewers rotated to the next person and asked their questions again. After 5 rotations, I exchanged the cards the interviewers had with the questions on them in French for a card with the same questions written in English, and I asked them to try the last 5 interviews by trying to ask the questions with only the English prompt to look at.
Once again I circulated around the room listening to each group. Once the interviewers ended up with the partner they started with, they all switched places with the students who had the profiles and we did the whole thing again.

Traditional interviews continue even though no one enjoys them! There is little argument that traditional interviews are time-consuming for all parties involved, often repetitive, and highly subjective. Fortunately, recruiters looking to embrace a radical new approach and save countless hours of needless work not to mention misery and frustration can follow the lead of singles looking for love.
The companies use this process for experienced candidates and for college hires. The Power of Thinking Without Thinking HR traditionalists are probably wondering how anyone could gather enough information in a short burst of interaction to make a decision as complicated as whom to hire.

It involves getting together 10 or more men and women and providing them with an opportunity to talk to each other, one-on-one, for five minutes each. I modified this dating technique to make classroom presentations provide more practice with oral language while making them less threatening for students. Procedure What you do is you have students prepare a five-minute oral presentation, based on a topic of your choice.
I call these “Speed Demos” with my students. Next, they present it five times to five different people in the class. They conduct their five-minute oral presentation, and then they listen to their partner present for five minutes. After that, they rotate to another person. I like to set up a list with names along with partners so that everyone knows whom they will be presenting for, but you may prefer to have them rotate on their own — especially if you can set up the classroom with desks in an outer circle and an inner circle to facilitate rotations.
I also use a timer set to five minutes to ensure that everyone gets his or her allotted amount of time to present. My Experience Students respond positively to the format because they do not feel too overwhelmed having to present in front of an entire class, and they comment that by the fifth presentation they feel much more comfortable and fluent.
They also remark that having to listen to five presentations one-on-one keeps them focused, as opposed to hearing a series of presentations from every student in the class. You can bring food as well to make the atmosphere more relaxed.
