Lifestyle change

I've just started a new position! I'm the Director of Programs for MentorNet. I've moved to San Jose, California and will be very busy bringing my past experience with diversity and online education to MentorNet and at the same time, learning more about e-mentoring . At the present time MentorNet programs are all at the post-secondary level. There is a lot of interest in developing e-mentoring programs at the high school level, but there are also a lot of issues (such as insuring the safety of the students) that are less an issue with post-secondary students, graduate students, and post-docs.

More on this in the future.

Hi Ray

I will be very interested in reading about your impressions of eMentoring. I am a midwifery researcher and lecturer and am just evaluating an eMetoring project with health professionals in Australia. It was a disaster! So I am currently interviewing people to find out why. best wishes Sarah
