Work with a community of peers to develop and improve your research mentoring skills in this engaging seminar. Students will develop their personal mentoring philosophy, learn how to articulate that philosophy across a variety of disciplines, and refine strategies for dealing with mentoring challenges.

The content of each session in this seminar is designed to address the key concerns and challenges identified by experienced research mentors. In addition to the general content about research mentoring, all of the case studies and some of the discussion questions draw specific attention to issues related to multidisciplinary research mentoring. Seminar topics include:

  • Aligning Expectations and Assessing Competencies
  • Promoting Professional Development
  • Maintaining Effective Communication
  • Fostering Equity and Inclusion in the Research Context
  • Fostering Independence
  • Cultivating Ethical Behavior
  • Articulating a Mentoring Philosophy and Plan
