Solutions to the enduring problem of teacher retention increasingly focus on the need for quality induction programs for beginning teachers. One response of the New South Wales Department of Education and Training is to nominate school mentors for all beginning teachers. This article reports on research that investigates the extent to which e-learning networks can support school mentoring to enhance induction programs.
