Effective Mentoring Return to listing


Mentoring principles are universal and apply to a variety of professional settings in and out of academia. This mentoring workshop series (CIMER: Entering Mentoring) will provide graduate students training in competencies and skills with effective mentoring (being mentors themselves). Graduate students in all disciplines are welcome to participate. Students who will be or are currently mentoring undergraduate students are particularly encouraged to participate. Sessions will be based on case scenarios, evidence-based practices, and participants are expected to actively engage in discussions. Participants are expected to commit to attending all four sessions. Those who participate in all 4 sessions and submit work will receive a placard acknowledging their participation. All sessions will be offered online, synchronously. Connection links will be shared with registrants prior to each session.
