Abstract

PORTUGUEZ-CASTRO, May  and  GOMEZ-ZERMENO, Marcela G.. Mentoring in an online entrepreneurship course. Systematization of an experience in higher education. Form. Univ. [online]. 2020, vol.13, n.6, pp.267-282. ISSN 0718-5006.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-50062020000600267.

The main objective of the present study was to analyse the elements involved in mentoring an online entrepreneurship course that had 20 undergraduate students from a university in northern Mexico. The study followed a methodology of systematization of the educational experience to delve into the steps followed by the participants in the mentoring and solution making processes. The results showed that, of the five participating teams, three teams that worked in mentoring sessions made a more structured solution than the other two groups that had little interaction with their mentors. The systematization of this experience allowed identifying obstacles that prevent reaching educational objectives such as the lack of mentor planning and student time. It is concluded that the activities and the steps suggested in this research study can be replicated as longs as specific actions are taken to mitigate the issues described.

Keywords : mentoring; entrepreneurship education; experience systematization; online learning; educational innovation; higher education.
