Illuminating the Heart of Mentoring: Intrinsic Value in Education
Lim, Lee Hean
New Horizons in Education, n51 p106-110 May 2005
Other than the fairly consistent and inspiring depiction of the origin of the word Mentor from Greek mythology, literature on mentoring surfaces a myriad of mentoring concepts, as variable as the individuals, pairs, groups or organizations involved. Despite the diversity, there exists an emphasis on learning and its associated dynamism. Beyond the mere utility value of mentoring, the author presents the core of powerful mentoring in illuminating the intrinsic unconditional love of mentoring in education.
