Why is it important?

Audio diaries are beneficial for personal and professional development. The tools and the methodology around them could be leveraged to broaden mentor–mentee dyads, which may lead to including university-based teacher educators and researchers from the field.


The value of this study arises from the process of recording audio diary logs as a direct representation of thoughts during the mentorship process. This opens up new and more authentic ways to explore mentoring and propose improvements.
