The five most popular Chronicle posts of 2019

by Jean Rhodes

Thanks for helping to make 2019 another banner year for Chronicle of Evidence-Based Mentoring! In case you missed them, here are five of the most frequently viewed posts of 2019.

  1. Many readers delved into the five key takeaways of a comprehensive new meta-analysis on youth mentoring.
  2. Readers also considered the two logical fallacies that have misled the field of youth mentoring.
  3. In 2019, we spoke with many established and emerging leaders in the field and the resulting “Profiles in mentoring,” are always popular. This includes a recent post about Dr. Paul Hernandez, whose work on mentoring is helping to advance our understanding of STEM mentoring.
  4. An early post by Prof. Adar Ben-Eliyahu about the difference between qualitative and quantitative research continues to lead the pack. We also highlighted some excellent new examples of both quantitative and qualitative mentoring work in our research summaries.
  5. Finally, our announcements of upcoming youth mentoring summits–in the U.S., Singapore, and Barcelona serve as a wonderful reminder of the growing international scope of youth mentoring. You can make new connections through the International Network of Mentoring Researchers.

Special thanks to Jeremy Astesano and Karina DeAndrade for their hard work this past year. And thank you again to our readers, including the 10,000 subscribers, for your interest in the Chronicle. Best wishes from all of us at the Center for Evidence-Based Mentoring for a happy and healthy 2020!
