Wilkes, Zoe


Zoe Wilkes


The student-mentor relationship is a complex one, which can be rewarding as well as problematic at times. Mentors want to provide a valuable practice experience for students but are constrained by multiple demands and limited resources. The mentor's role is paramount in student assessment and the mentor should receive the support necessary to enhance student learning.
