Mentoring and Tutoring within Administrative Internship Programs in American Universities
Wilmore, Elaine L.; Bratlien, Maynard J.
Mentoring & Tutoring: Partnership in Learning, v13 n1 p23-37 Apr 2005
The article presents a significant national research project conducted by the authors and sponsored by the National Council of Professors of Educational Administration. It analyzes the varying aspects of administrative internships in American universities today. Professors of Educational Administration from around the nation were surveyed on-line and at the NCPEA 2002 annual conference held in Burlington, Vermont. This article targets the utilization of mentoring and tutoring of administrative interns by both university supervisors and P-12 campus and district mentors. Additional variables related to mentoring and tutoring administrative interns include time constraints, finances, structures, accreditations, and other barriers to success. Strengths, weaknesses, and commonalities are analyzed as well as conclusions, implications, and recommendations for further research.
