Mentoring of New Teachers as a Contested Practice: Supervision, Support and Collaborative Self-development
This article aims to examine contested practices of mentoring of newly qualified teachers within and between New South Wales in Australia, Finland and Sweden. The meta-analysis revealed three main archetypes of mentoring: mentoring as supervision, mentoring as support, and mentoring as collaborative self-development. These three different views of mentoring are found in Australia, Sweden and Finland. The authors suggested that these three different archetypes of mentoring form very different dispositions in mentees and mentors.

Action research aims to explore new ways of doing things, new ways of thinking, and new ways of relating to one another and to the world. In this article, the author wants to explore the place of action research in shaping and making history by changing what is done. The author argues that the first concern of action researchers should be the contribution of their action to history, not so much to theory. To find out what needs to be done differently, we need action research that will inform our individual praxis and inform our collective praxis.
