OPTIMIZING THE PRACTICE OF MENTORING: HOW TO BE AN EFFECTIVE RESEARCH MENTOR

This workshop's objective is to prepare junior and senior faculty to be effective research mentors through presentations by experts in the field of faculty mentoring.

The 2-day format of lectures in the mornings and small-group facilitated discussions during the afternoon will engage learners through presentations and interactive activities. Mentors and mentees at all different professional levels are welcome to attend the morning sessions on both days. The afternoon small group sessions are designed for mentors only and require a 2-day commitment.

The presenters will also introduce attendees to a free online curriculum for mentor training that is designed to improve users' mentoring knowledge and skills, while encouraging reflection about one's mentoring behaviors and providing tools to support the mentoring process.
