Abstract

This article reports on the implementation of a model of mentoring in higher education to improve research output. A number of mentoring models were analysed before implementing a new model for research mentoring. The ethnographic case study reports on the mentor's observation of different influences on the mentoring process after having implemented the model for a few months. The study revealed that the implementation of the model was influenced by the university context in which it took place, the dynamics of the three groups that functioned as communities of practice, and the individual dispositions of the participants.


Hierdie artikel rapporteer die implementering van 'n model om navorsing in hoëronderwys te mentor om navorsingsuitsette te verbeter. 'n Aantal mentorskapmodelle is krities ontleed en 'n nuwe model is geïmplementeer. Die etnografiese gevallestudie rapporteer die mentor se observasie van verskillende invloede op die mentorproses nadat die model vir 'n paar maande geïmplementeer is. Die studie het aangetoon dat die model beïnvloed word deur die universiteitskonteks waarin dit plaasvind, die dinamika binne die drie groepe wat as praktykgemeenskappe funksioneer en die individuele ingesteldhede van deelnemers.
