Mentoring: The Human Touch

Mentoring: The Human Touch

An Educational Module



The Kappa Omicron Nu educational module, MENTORING: THE HUMAN TOUCH, has two sections; the first section includes three sequential interactive instructional activities, and the second section includes five models for facilitating mentoring. It was written by members experienced in conducting interactive education and mentoring programs: Dorothy I. Mitstifer, Kappa Omicron Nu Executive Director; Burness Wenberg, Dietetics Educator of Michigan State University; and Pauline E. Schatz, Educational Consultant, formerly of California State University-Los Angeles.

The specific goals of the instructional activities are to a) review the current focus on mentoring, b) identify mentoring experiences and desired changes, c) explore mentoring self-management, d) identify personal mentoring goals, and e) explore the self-mentoring action planning process.

The mentoring models include a) Narrative Mentoring Plan, b) Career Fair, c) Mentoring Field Experience, d) Peer Mentoring Program, and e) explore the self-mentoring action planning process.


The unique contributions of MENTORING: THE HUMAN TOUCH are that it contains the conceptual framework of mentoring self-management and that it offers simple or more complex models for encouraging mentoring. Thus, this initiative of Kappa Omicron Nu facilitates intentional mentoring and promotes the development of human potential within our profession.
