TitleDoes e-mentoring work? The effectiveness and challenges of an international professional mentoring scheme
AuthorsSanyal, C. and Rigby, C.
Abstract

Advances in technology have enabled online solutions to open up possibilities of mentoring relationships that cross boundaries of time, geography and culture (Zay 2011). This empirical study uses an action research approach to evaluate mentor-mentee relationships which are defined by their international separation. The paper highlights the extent to which e-mentoring relationships developed within this scheme and discusses the factors to be considered when technology is used to support mentoring relationships.
