We will be offering five sections of Research Mentor Training this summer. This Delta Program seminar is designed to help graduate students and postdocs become effective research mentors. Seminar discussions focus on different mentoring styles and strategies for developing confidence, independence, creativity, and communication skills in your current and future mentees. The mentor training seminar consists of weekly one-hour sessions in which participants address issues in mentoring through facilitated discussions based on collaboration and collective problem solving. Participants will read articles and case studies, write biographies of their mentees, compare their goals with those of their mentees, explore time-management strategies, and write mentoring philosophies. This is a terrific opportunity for new mentors to get off on the right foot, and for experienced mentors to share their wisdom.

The success of undergraduate and graduate research experiences depends largely on a positive relationship between the student and the research mentor. Therefore, it is vital that current and future faculty be effective mentors. This Delta Program seminar is designed to help current faculty members become more effective research mentors. Seminar discussions focus on different mentoring styles and strategies for developing confidence, independence, creativity, and communication skills in your mentees. Rather than adding to the time you will spend mentoring, this seminar is designed to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of your mentoring. The mentor training seminar consists of 6-8 weekly one-hour sessions in which you will address issues in mentoring through facilitated discussions based on collaboration and collective problem solving.
