Abstract

The case study investigates the mentee’s (veteran faculty) adoption and integration of technology as well as the mentee-mentor interactions within the framework of Rogers’ Diffusion of Innovations theory (2003) and Bandura’s Social Learning Theory (1977). After an initial needs analysis through interviews and class observation, the goal was set to examine and develop the mentee’s research method class in the aspect of emerging technology integration. Upon close observation, one technology, digital storytelling, was successfully adopted and implemented in the research method class through all five stages in diffusion of innovations process. Moreover, the multiple roles the mentee plays came into play, which resulted in variations in the diffusion process. The findings of the case study indicates that the reciprocal interactions of the person, behavior, and the environment in the mentoring experience have an effect on the innovation decision process (Roger, 2003), from which both the mentee and the mentor benefit the most.
