Better Research Through Better Mentoring
Strong mentorship has been linked to enhanced mentee productivity, self-efficacy, career satisfaction, and is an important predictor of the academic success of scientists and engineers in training. The Center for the Improvement of Mentored Experiences in Research (CIMER) has developed a curriculum based on proven mentorship development curricula.
Federal funding agencies are calling for evidence-based development of mentoring skills as an important component of successful grant proposals. By participating in this workshop faculty will develop and/or enhance their mentoring skills and receive resources and materials to support effective mentoring of graduate students and postdoctoral trainees.
Attendance is limited to 25 faculty members from any discipline although many of the case studies come from STEM fields.
This four-hour workshop will conclude on April 14 from 3-5 p.m.
This is the second of the two-part series required for the Drake Institute Research Mentoring Training teaching endorsement.
