March 13, 2018 - Handling Tricky Mentoring Situations

  • Learn how to address some of the trickiest situations you might encounter when mentoring undergraduate researchers or graduate students, from modeling appropriate research ethics to sharing co-advised students. We will also discuss how you might solicit feedback and turn around projects that aren't going as planned (from the mentor's perspective).

All sessions are on Tuesdays from 12:00-2:00 pm and include catered lunch.
