Mentoring for Professional Development: Experiences of University Faculty
Mentoring means the mutual interaction among the faculty as a function of professional development. The present research was carried out to: a) check the extent of mutual interaction between the mentors and mentees in the department, b) find out the effectiveness of mentoring in the professional development of teachers and c) investigate the benefits /outcomes of mentoring in the professional development of teachers through formal or informal way. The population of the study consisted of the mentors and mentees of public and private universities of Rawalpindi and Islamabad. For the achievement of the objectives of the study two questionnaires were designed separately for mentors and mentees. The data was tabulated, analyzed and interpreted in the light of the objectives of the study. Chi square was used as a statistical tool for data analysis. It is clear from the conclusions that there is no formal or informal mentoring program in the universities and mentors and mentees had viewed for a proper mentoring program in the universities. There is also not any provision of resources for mentoring by the universities so it is recommended that there should be a formal and informal mentoring program in the universities as it is very effective instrument for teaching and the universities may also provide resources for mentoring.
