New Canadian Research on Mentoring Relationship Quality: Watch the Webinar
During Mentoring Month, the Canadian Centre for Mentoring Research (CCMR) hosted a webinar to share research findings from phase 1 of an ongoing Canadian research project which aims to improve programs' ability to increase mentor/mentee compatibility and quality mentoring relationship formation.
Mentoring relationship quality (MRQ) is often a key to success for mentoring programs. However, there is limited knowledge about specific factors that contribute high-quality relationships. Researchers have defined and measured MRQ in different ways and program practices about creating and maintaining quality mentoring relationships vary widely across Canada.
Watch the webinar which explores findings from a review of the literature and of select program practices.
Have your say and contribute to the research project: Mentors and Mentees needed!
The research team under the direction of Dr. Christina Rinaldi is looking for mentors and mentees to participate in a survey about mentoring relationship quality. The project needs help recruiting mentees between the ages of 12 to 17 and mentors of teenagers (12-17).
This is the first study of its kind in Canada! Research findings will support program practices to enhance the quality of mentoring relationships.
Mentors and mentees who complete the survey will have a chance to win 1 of 2 $100 gift cards of their choice (Amazon, Chapters, or Walmart).
