Electronic Mentoring: Issues To Advance Research and Practice
International Mentoring Association Annual Meeting,
E-mentoring is the merger of mentoring with electronic communications and has been termed telementoring, cybermentoring, or virtual mentoring. By leveraging the growth in information technology, electronic mentoring provides opportunities for mentoring prohibited by face-to-face mentoring programs. Yet, the ease with which e-mentoring programs can be developed may belie the planning, administration, and resources required to make them successful. Because of the physical distance between program developers and participants, the temptation is great to match mentors with proteges but then provide little in the way of coaching, training, and follow-up. This paper defines e-mentoring and structured e-mentoring programs, identifies their promise, and highlights some potential pitfalls. It then suggests a model for conducting structured mentoring programs and applies this model to the e-mentoring format. In the process of applying this model, open research questions that pertain to e-mentoring are identified. (Contains 18 references.) (Author/AEF)
