Lin, Yii-nii
Education, v135 n1 p79-92 Fall 2014
The purpose of this study is to describe the peer-mentoring experience from the perspective of 16 master's students majoring in science or engineering at a research-oriented university in Taiwan. Utilizing a qualitative method of phenomenology, these mentees shared their views about their peer-mentors through in-depth interviews. Participants acknowledged the importance and effectiveness of peer-mentoring. They appreciated the assistance and guidance provided by their respective mentors, and believed they helped reduce anxiety. Also, peer-mentors were perceived to enhance their mentees' professional knowledge, to help them adapt to laboratory teams, and to assist in accomplishing laboratory research.
