Roles responsibilities and relationships in mentoring a literature review
Hawkey, K. Roles, responsibilities and relationships in mentoring: A literature review and agenda for research, Journal of Teacher Education, 48, The study also identifies types of relationships that transpire within pairs. Findings indicate that there is no great dispute between mentors and mentees on the mentoring role. However, the types of relationships that have been identified highlight the com- plexities that mentorship entails and arouse critical questions concerning the benefits of the mentoring process.

Mentor and mentee are common titles granted to employees in the workplace with little clarity on the role they play or how the relationship should benefit both the parties. We live in a world where knowledge is considered power and people with knowledge feel entitled to have opinions and pass judgement. Mentor is viewed as the advisor in the relationship with mentee being the party benefiting from the relationship. So, while it looks this way, effective mentorship is actually a two-way conversation in which both parties feel committed to the problem and share a desire to learn from each other. Setting up the right mentor mentee relationship involves creating a safe and supportive environment where both mentor and mentee can engage in building trust, setting goals and achieving them through creative problem solving and solutioning. Mentor is a person with expertise, experience or knowledge which is valuable to others and holds strong beliefs about helping others by sharing this knowledge with the world. They act as the guide, advisor and support structure to bring out the best in people by learning about their strengths and leveraging it to co-create solutions.

Students participating in undergraduate research experiences UREs in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics STEM might be faced with a number of engaging and challenging situations during their research experience. The success of students in UREs depends upon the support structures in place. Often this means having available and accessible mentors, although not all undergraduates will have access to mentors.
The purpose of this chapter is to remind mentors about the roles they play while grooming future scientists. Although formal mentor training is highly desirable, not all scientists have the opportunity or resources available to participate in such pro- grams. This chapter is designed to help clarify roles and responsibilities and to suggest activities that will lead to successful attainment of career goals that meet the expectations of the trainee. As discussed previously, mentoring was listed as the most critical factor in the career success of a trainee.
