Abstract [en]

Mentorship is a method that is used in both professional education and training and inworking life to introduce new employees. Previous research has shown that there is limitedexperience of mentorship in the parts of higher education that are outside of professionaleducation and training. The purpose of this article is to deepen knowledge of how mentorshipcan be used as a pedagogic tool to integrate theory and practice in a social scienceprogramme at a Swedish university. The empirical material is obtained from a case study thatincludes students/mentees and contact persons/mentors. The results show that mentorship isan important contribution to the learning process for the integration of theory and practice inhigher education to develop both practically applied and theoretically anchored knowledge.Besides cooperation forms and workplace-related studies in the programme, mentorship thusbecomes the third component of the learning process.
