How to Enhance your Mentoring Relationship: The Role of the Mentee



Benjamin Franklin quoted, “Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I may remember. Involve me and I learn” (n.d.).  With this in mind, your mentor has taken on the responsibility to help you learn.  However, it is your responsibility to become and remain involved with the process.  Remember, “Every beginner possesses a great potential to be an expert in his or her chosen field” (Akita, 2014).  Your role in a mentoring relationship is important, as your expertise evolves with the unselfish guidance from your mentor.  This tutorial will help you with choosing the right mentor, establishing the relationship, asking the right questions, keeping the mentoring relationship active and meaningful, dealing with conflict, and ending the mentoring relationship as needed.  The WebQuest provided numerous readings and videos.  You do not need to explore all the learning activities.  Choose the activities that pertain to your leaning needs.  Have fun!
