A Synergistic Approach to Faculty Mentoring
Goodwin, Laura D.
Journal of Faculty Development, v19 n3 p145-152 2004
Following a comparison of two approaches to mentoring--the traditional model and a relatively new "synergistic" or co-mentoring model--a new formal mentoring program for faculty in the School of Education at the University of Colorado at Denver, based on the synergistic approach, is described. First-year program evaluation data revealed a number of benefits for both mentors and mentees, especially many collaborative research efforts and scholarly products.
