This paper aims to evaluate group mentoring as a large‐scale form of collaborative learning.
Researchers used a 12‐question survey and personal interviews to assess the relevancy and success of group mentoring, and its impact on personal productivity/effectiveness and organizational success.
A total of 93 percent said topics discussed during their group mentoring events were relevant to them and their jobs, and 96 percent reported that they could apply information gained during group mentoring directly to their role in the organization.
Further research with a larger survey population would be valuable, particularly as the use of group mentoring expands.
Group mentoring can replace costly classroom training, allowing more people to gain useful and practical knowledge in a setting that supports large‐scale productivity and effectiveness back on the job.
All content in this paper is new. Readers will discover the latest research and trends in group mentoring and collaborative learning.
