Beyond a Definition: Toward a Framework for Designing and Specifying Mentoring Models
Dawson, Phillip
Educational Researcher, v43 n3 p137-145 Apr 2014
More than three decades of mentoring research has yet to converge on a unifying definition of mentoring; this is unsurprising given the diversity of relationships classified as mentoring. This article advances beyond a definition toward a common framework for specifying mentoring models. Sixteen design elements were identified from the literature and tested through specification of two different mentoring models from higher education contexts. This framework provides researchers and practitioners with a detailed yet concise method of communicating exactly what they mean when using the word "mentoring"; it may also act as a useful set of prompts for educators designing new mentoring interventions.
