Ed.: eument-net, Fribourg 2011, ISBN 978-2-9700611-2-0
This publication is based on the eument-net workshop on “Mentor training and coaching” held in 2010. Contributions provide insight how mentoring programmes can enhance their effectiveness in empowering the individual mentee while also fostering organisational change through an increased focus on mentors. They show how academic mentoring programmes conceive a mentor’s role and how the understanding of this role can be increased and developed. Contributions also discuss experiences with different kinds of training for mentors.
