Abstract

This chapter describes a project which investigated qualitative expressions in an online mentoring community involving secondary pre-service teachers and practising teachers. The practising teachers acted as online mentors to the pre-service teachers who were personally, professionally and geographically isolated due to being located in regional, rural or remote areas. The online mentoring enabled rural and remote pre-service teachers to benefit from the ability to engage with practising teachers for both professional and academic purposes. The participants’ posts hosted in an invitational online space were coded using a content analysis framework, and outcomes from the online mentoring project are provided.
