Based upon an internationally recognized evidence-based mentoring training curriculum (http://www.researchmentortraining.org/), this workshop is designed to provide participants with some of the most important skills and ideas required for high-level mentoring of undergraduate or graduate students in a research environment. This will be an ideal, in-depth professional development experience for graduate students or postdocs who will be mentoring research assistants over the summer months. Graduate students and postdocs will have the opportunity to come learn about (and share) best practices in mentoring research assistants. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and share strategies about the most effective way to both provide students with an excellent learning experience and get their own work done.
Speakers: Melissa McDaniels and Judi Brown Clarke
