This mentoring workshop is designed to give mentors a framework for crafting effective and productive research mentoring relationships. After attending this workshop, attendees will be able to:
Describe the benefits of mentoring for both mentees and mentors
Discuss characteristics of successful research mentoring
Articulate effective communication strategies to effectively integrate student researchers into the lab/academic community
Develop an awareness for possible biases and miscommunication
Develop skills for communication, feedback, and self-assessment as a research mentor
Create a plan for effective mentoring
This workshop, which is a part of The Teaching Center STEM Pedagogy Workshop Series, is highly recommended for graduate student research mentors who are participating in summer research programs such as the BP-ENDURE: St. Louis Neuroscience Pipeline Program or the Leadership Alliance Program. For mentors interested or participating in The Teaching Center professional-development programs, attendance at this workshop will count as an advance-level workshop toward the Teaching Citation program requirements and an elective workshop for the WU-CIRTL program requirements.
There are a limited number of slots open to Washington University graduate students beyond their first year and postdoctoral appointees in STEM. Priority registration will open Monday May 22nd. Open registration will open on Friday May 26th.
This workshop is offered two times (both listed as separate events on this calendar). Please register for one session: June 1st at 4:30pm-6pm on the Medical campus or June 5th at 8:30am-10am on the Danforth campus.
