Abstract: With the ever-increasing role of technology as an innovative force in society, we have witnessed major changes in the types of education being developed and in how learning and instruction is conceptualised. Consider, for example, the dramatic rise in the number of Internet-based courses offered in higher education as well as the evolving role of the teacher as creator of learning environments. Accordingly, considering the possibilities and limitations of mentoring in this new and dynamic technological context is both timely and relevant. It is the nexus between mentorship and technology that is the subject of this first special issue of Mentoring & Tutoring.
