- This event has passed.
In this series of hybrid workshops designed for current graduate students and postdocs and open to those in all fields, you will develop essential research mentoring skills, particularly in disciplines where research is conducted collaboratively and in teams. Effective mentoring of student research is a key skill influencing everything from research productivity to personal satisfaction. Learn best practices for mentoring undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral researchers, and develop advising and communication skills needed to lead a research team.
All sessions will be practical in nature and feature short pre-readings or videos, case studies or discussion with panelists, and self-assessments to help identify your strengths and desired areas for improvement.
Interested participants should apply prior to the start of the series with the expectation of attending all workshops and actively participating in small and large group discussions. Building Mentorship Skills program completion certificates will be provided for fully participating in at least 5 of 7 sessions.
This is an invitation-only event for registrants who have been accepted to participate in this year’s Building Mentorship Skills cohort. Registered participants will receive connection details for each session. February sessions will be remote for all participants.
