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

In this series of interactive workshops designed for current Cornell 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. Learn best practices for mentoring research students and technicians and develop planning and communication skills needed to guide individual mentees and research teams.

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 of completion for successfully participating in at least 4 of 5 sessions (dates: 2/20, 3/5, 3/19, 3/25, and 4/16). 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. 

Sessions are on Tuesdays between 2:00-4:00 pm ET. See full schedule and topics
