Improving the Peer Mentoring Experience through Evaluation
Hall, Ralph
Learning Assistance Review, v12 n2 p7-17 Fall 2007
Peer mentoring programs are designed to address problems experienced by new students to assist them in making the transition to university study. The University of New South Wales offers such a program to new undergraduate students. Feedback on the program is obtained from participants through questionnaires and is used to identify problems and to elicit suggestions for program improvement. The study examines the effectiveness of improvements to the program as a result of evaluation feedback. Findings show that improvements to program content and delivery result in better outcomes for mentees but that administrative problems still need to be addressed. (Contains 3 tables and 1 figure.)
