Strong mentorship has been linked to enhanced mentee productivity, self-efficacy, career satisfaction, and is an important predictor of the academic success of scientists in training. Join experienced mentors for sessions that are based on the Entering Mentoring curriculum, which has been successfully tested in a multi-site randomized controlled trial led by UW-Madison. The mentors who participated in Entering Mentoring assess their mentees' skills and communicate with them more effectively.
This workshop uses a case-based approach to discuss mentoring challenges among peers, share best mentoring practices, read relevant literature, review structured documents for mentoring success (e.g., compacts and individual development plans), and create a mentoring philosophy. Offered as two 3-hour sessions, the workshop is limited to 12 participants who can attend all sessions.
Session 1: Understanding the importance of mentoring, Maintaining effective communication, Aligning expectations, Addressing equity and inclusion
Session 2: Cultivating ethical behavior, Assessing understanding, Fostering independence, Articulating a mentoring philosophy
