Do you ever find it challenging to connect with your students? With faculty? With colleagues? Have you ever encountered power dynamics in your field or at Cornell that you didn’t know how to address?

In this series of biweekly lunchtime workshops for graduate students and postdocs, you will develop essential research mentoring skills for an academic career, particularly one where research is conducted in teams in a laboratory or field setting. Effective mentoring of students is a key skill influencing everything from research productivity to personal satisfaction. Learn best practices for mentoring undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral researchers, and develop your advising and mentoring skills needed to lead a research team.

Learn how to work with undergraduate students in this workshop designed for international teaching assistants (ITAs) who are getting ready to teach in the American classroom. The workshop will cover important actions ITAs can take before the semester begins and learn about expectations of American undergraduate students in order to more effectively interact with students. Cross-sharing of cultural norms and expectations from participants’ home countries will provide reflective opportunities to determine how best to interact with American undergraduate students.

In this CIRTLCast Semiar series, examine how social and cultural contexts shape the experiences of undergraduate women in STEM. In each week of this series, we will discuss the unique challenges faced by women in their educational trajectories. Despite efforts to broaden participation in STEM over the last few decades, women remain underrepresented in these fields. Across the series, we will explore how equity-oriented, inclusive practices can transform teaching and learning in STEM.

Develop and practice your own strategies for effective communication in this case-study-based workshop focused on building and maintaining rapport with students. The workshop will include a facilitated case study discussion (see "Workload" below). In that discussion, participants will investigate sources of mis-communication between students and instructors, and discuss tangible strategies to increase effective communication (verbal and non-verbal) with others in and out of the classroom.
