Facilitating Mentoring Relationships: The Case for New Technology
InSITE 2003 • Volume 3 • 2003
This paper describes a research project that analyzes how new technology can facilitate mentoring relationships. The specific new technology assessed in this research is the Internet. This is a particularly useful medium for communication in mentoring relationships because it expands the number and variety of mentoring relationships that can be facilitated, and it expands the time and space available for these relationships. This research supports the mentoring enactment theory developed by Kalbfleisch (2002) and expands our knowledge of how the Internet can play an influential role in the development and maintenance of mentoring relationships.
