Elements of Effective Mentoring
Friday, Nov. 21 | 2-3 pm | Edmon Low Library Browsing Room
Though everyone approaches mentoring differently, there are some common themes that most mentoring philosophies share. Workshop participants will discuss what has proven effective in their own mentoring while exploring what they can learn from others. Participants will begin to develop their own mentoring philosophies.
Optional Reading: In Nature’s Guide for Mentors, Adrian Lee, Carina Dennis and Philip Campbell look at what makes a good mentor, noting that “having a good mentor early in your career can mean the difference between success and failure in any field.” In the same document, Jeffrey Scott Coker and Eric Davies offer “Ten Time-Saving Tips for Undergraduate Research Mentors.”Date:Friday, November 21, 2014 - 02:00Location:Edmon Low Library Browsing Room
