Ardley, Jillian; Aldemir, Jale
Journal of Educational Technology, v13 n2 p21-29 Jul-Sep 2016
Faculty mentoring in higher education aims to scaffold mentee to adjust to the new work setting, build social relations with others, and improve instructional skills in the same physical environment. However, this process could be problematic in institutions serving in satellite campuses with geographically spread faculty body. The purpose of the current study is to educate experienced faculty on telecasted pedagogy by utilizing Videoconferencing Mediated Mentoring (VMM) model. Three full-time and one adjunct faculty participated in the study at a Southeastern North Carolina University. Data was collected through mentor's and mentees' weekly logs, and interview with mentees. Integrity of quality instruction, instructional transformation, multiplicity, establishing new collaborations and alliances, and advocacy were emerging themes from the data.
