Effective mentoring within physical education teacher education

Cover of SCoTENS Compilation Report, August 2012The aim of this research project is to:

  • Prepare a summary of existing research on best practice in effective mentoring in the work place, within and beyond education
  • Analyse three different models of mentoring in PETE (physical education teacher education) in three research sites, and to compare them with each other and the existing literature on effective mentoring.
  • Provide an opportunity for mentors in the three research sites to comment on current practice and it identify gaps in their training and preparation for becoming an effective mentor.
  • Prepare a position statement on effective mentoring in PETE, using the format of a collaborative seminar that can inform practice in the three research sites, underpin joint research publications and provide a rationale for further collaborative research.
