Overview

This is a book on the good practice of mentoring written by scholars and practitioners in education, health and industry. It considers the roles of the mentor-mentee in changing workplaces affected by external forces including technology, the economy and the dismantling of middle- management structures, and offers guidelines for those who seek good practice, and the nurturing of the individual in a caring and collaborative culture.; A brief history of mentoring and its subsequent usage is presented, with special attention paid to the gender issues. New concepts such as "shadowing" and "reflective interviewing" are introduced and explained, and strategies are presented in such a way that they can be applied and adapted in any setting. The whole process, therefore, aims to empower the professional in a school, university or industrial level, and with others, towards a more effective and perceptive practice.; All those involved in education and training of individuals at a school, college or industrial level training will find this useful.

Aims to empower a professional in a school, university, or industry, to take on the role of mentor. Drawing on experiences mostly in Australia and Tasmania, explores the traditional and modern history of mentoring, emphasizes gender issues, and explains such concepts as shadowing and reflective interviewing. The mentor approach to training professionals is advocated in the context of the increased time a student teacher spends in school- based experience, changes in technology and the economy, and the dismantling of middle management.
