Making sense of the experiences of mentor teachers in traditional teacher education: What lessons can distance education learn from the practice?

This paper was presented at the Distance Education and Teacher's Training in Africa (DETA) 2009 Conference, August 2009, Ghana. The trend towards school-based teacher preparation in initial teacher training during the 1980s has contributed to the popular use of the term “mentoring” to signify the appointment of experienced teachers to undertake the supervision of student teachers during their teaching practice in schools (McIntyre, Hagger & Wilkin, 1993; Wilkin, 1992).
