Abstract Nowadays, educational environments are also affected by the rapid changes in information and technology and the use of technology in learning-teaching processes is becoming increasingly widespread. In this respect, it is important to develop the technology-related competencies of all instructors for the effective use of technology at higher education level. Hacettepe University Center for Sustainable Teaching and Learning (STL) implements the "Technology Mentoring for Lecturers" program to improve the technological skills of the lecturers working at the university and to support them to use technology effectively in their courses. In this program, successful students of IT departments are paired with lecturers who need training in technology, and mentor-mentee pairs are expected to work regularly on technology-related activities for 5 weeks. Although the participant opinions about the Technology Mentoring Program in the past were positive, it was observed that the students who applied to be mentors in the program needed a mentoring training to prepare them for the process. In this study, TME was designed for students who wanted to mentor in TMP and the effectiveness of this training was examined. This study was designed with quantitative and qualitative research methods. The research group consisted of students taking the Technology Planning and Applications course at Hacettepe University, Department of ITTE. Pre-test-post-test and semi-structured interview forms were used as data collection tools. The results revealed that TME had a statistically significant positive effect on students' mentor competencies. The opinions of the mentors show that TME contributes to their mentoring skills and thus they are effective in the process. According to the opinions of the mentees, the fact that the mentors communicate effectively, are enthusiastic, systematic and planned revealed that the mentors are sufficient in their mentoring skills. Keywords: mentoring, technology mentoring, reverse mentoring, mentor training.
