Best Practices for Mentoring Graduate Students & Post-Doctoral Fellows

Best Practices for Mentoring Graduate Students & Post-Doctoral Fellows
Friday, April 17th | 10:00am to 11:30am
Faculty Center, Marriott Library (MLIB 1705)

For most faculty at a major research university such as the University of Utah, the mentor relationship with graduate students and/or post-doctoral fellows is a very important form of teaching. The majority of faculty are not taught how to be good mentors. This workshop will be a panel discussion of University of Utah faculty members who have been recognized for their outstanding mentoring of graduate students and/or post-doctoral fellows. They will discuss their own approach to the mentoring process, as well as provide suggestions to help faculty who want to enhance or who may be struggling with their role as mentor. Light refreshments will be provided.

This workshop is free, but we ask that you register in advance at: http://goo.gl/forms/0viUjJOP6k
