My interest in this site and its content comes from the fact I am leading an international research team (USA; Québec; Belgique et Suisse) at work on a participatory research project on "la formation des enseignants associés". This project is a 3 year SSHRC funded project.
For us, the term mentoring is not the one we adopted (we have the French equivalent) but we decided to use "accompagnement de stagiaires". As you can see our work is in the teacher education phase rather than in the induction phase. But I tend to think that there should some kind of continuity.
