Better Research through Better Mentoring - Part 2
Date: October 18 & 20 2021
Time: 11:30 am – 1:30 pm
Target Audience: Faculty
Location: Online via Zoom
Attendance is limited to 25 faculty members from any discipline although many of the case studies come from STEM fields.
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 research.
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.
These mentoring workshops are now part of an endorsement in Research Mentoring from the Drake Institute. This endorsement can be used to document in your CV to document your training in this area.
