Title: Towards a Taxonomy of E-mentoring

Speaker: Aseel Alhadlaq, MSc (PhD Candidate in Newcastle University)


This presentation examines the balance between theory and practice that have given rise to the increase attention to the role of e-mentoring. A systematic literature review is conducted to identify, evaluate and interpret available research relevant to e-mentoring. In reporting the insights from the systematic literature review, we describe the different types of e-mentoring systems in the past 20 years. Classification ranged from the mentorship relationship, the network that ties a mentor with mentees, the knowledge domain in which e-mentoring took place and the platform used for the mentorship relationship.
