SCEC Workshop: Research Mentee Training - Harnessing Mentoring Relationships

Date: September 9 & 10, 2021 (09:00-11:00 PDT each day)

Research mentoring is collaborative in that mentees and mentors engage as partners through reciprocal activities such as planning, acting, reflecting, questioning, and problem-solving. Successful mentoring relationships are those in which mentees reach the individual milestones that allow them to progress to the next stage along the trajectory of their academic career.

This training is designed to support graduate students in developing the skills needed to successfully navigate the research training environment. Participants will learn how to proactively shape their mentoring relationships and their work environments, better understand themselves and their needs, and effectively carry out their relationships and climates to ensure those needs are met.

In this evidence-based, interactive workshop, participants will explore approaches and resources to advancing their practice in areas including:

• Aligning Expectations
• Addressing Equity and Inclusion
• Assessing Understanding
• Maintaining Effective Communication

While priority consideration will be given to graduate students, we encourage any student interested in developing effective research mentoring relationships to apply. For more information, see the workshop website:https://www.scec.org/workshops/2021/mentee-training.
