Evidence of Mentor Learning and Development: An Analysis of New Zealand Mentor/Mentee Professional Conversations
This study examines dialogue for evidence of inquiring habits of mind within mentor–mentee interactions. The findings revealed that learning and development was found but at differential rates not necessarily related to experience as a teacher or mentor prior to the programme. Furthermore, while the goals typically aligned with the philosophy of the programme, conversation content analysis revealed a discrepancy between intended goals and actual conversation.

This article examined the properties of a new induction measure (Langdon Induction and Mentoring Survey [LIMS]) using quantitative and qualitative approaches. The sample included 273 participants: beginning teachers, school-appointed mentor teachers, classroom teachers, and school leaders from public schools in New Zealand. The authors argue that the LIMS serves to address the significant gap between the need and the availability of viable measures of induction and mentoring programmes for beginning teachers. The LIMS was found to be psychometrically sound for this sample. In addition, this analysis indicated that significant differences were found in perceptions of programme quality between the school leaders and teaching staff, with school leaders demonstrating the highest positive responses and the classroom teachers the lowest positive responses.
