Event Description 

Multiple studies have shown that mentors and mentoring support play a critical role in a researcher’s personal and professional development. However, lab mentoring can be a challenging process. What pedagogical and mentoring strategies should we employ to support the mentee’s research journey? In this Advanced Teaching Workshop (ATW), we will discuss how to establish clear mentor-mentee expectations, support mentee career/research goals as well as facilitate personal independence in a scientific thinking process. Finally, we will discuss how thinking about inclusivity in the mentoring relationship can help open the path to research for all scientists. This ATW counts toward the Poorvu Center’s Certificate of College Preparation.
