Graduate Student Eugene Law leads a small group discussion about mentoring strategies

In this series of remotely delivered workshops designed for current graduate students and postdocs and open to those in all fields, you will develop essential research mentoring skills, particularly for disciplines where research is conducted collaboratively. Effective mentoring of student research is a key skill influencing everything from research productivity to personal satisfaction. Learn best practices for mentorship of summer undergraduate researchers, rotation students, or research technicians, and develop planning and communication skills needed to lead a research project or group.

All sessions will be practical in nature and feature short pre-readings or videos, case study discussions, and self-assessments to help identify your strengths and desired areas for improvement.Receive a certificate for completing at least 4 of 5 sessions (dates: 3/23, 4/13, 4/20, 4/25 (in person/hybrid event), and 5/11). 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. 

Most sessions are on Thursdays from 3:00-4:30 pm ET. Registered participants will receive Zoom connection details for each session. See full schedule and topics
