Mentor training can make the difference between a mutually beneficial and productive mentoring relationship and one that’s draining for the mentor and discouraging for the mentee. Research Mentor Training is a nationally recognized curriculum that
gives participants space to reflect and reinvigorate and provides concrete tools to support a successful mentor/mentee relationship.
During the workshop, participants:
- Explored multiple strategies for effective mentoring through case studies based on real situations, discussions and readings
- Compared mentor and mentee goals and crafted a statement of a mentoring philosophy
- Explored time-management strategies and discussed relevant issues as they came up
- Collaborated and problem-solved with a group of peers
