Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Mentoring has been increasingly used in educational enhancements and development to facilitate transfer of knowledge in higher education from one lecturer to another. However, the process is unclear and lecturers are not aware of the process itself. Therefore, studies about the awareness of mentoring in universities such as in University Tenaga Nasional (UNITEN) is deemed important. This paper looks into the awareness level of lecturers in UNITEN about mentoring program. Specifically, the results of an awareness survey to all UNITEN lecturers are presented and analyzed. The survey results demonstrate various levels of knowledge of mentoring, sources of the knowledge about mentoring, respondent's attitude towards mentoring, and all common perspectives concerning mentoring. In particular, they show that mentoring program is becoming familiar to lecturers but proper documentation and peer monitoring are needed to facilitate the progress.
