This year, the Center for Teaching & Learning Excellence has chosen as our theme Inspired Teaching. The final workshop in our Inspired Teaching series focuses on Graduate Mentoring. For most faculty at a major research university such as the University of Utah, the mentoring of graduate students is a very important form of teaching. The majority of faculty are never taught how to be good mentors for our students; if we were lucky enough we had a good faculty mentor when we were graduate students. This workshop will be a panel discussion of University of Utah faculty members who have been recognized with awards as great graduate mentors. They will discuss their approaches to mentoring and give suggestions to help faculty who are struggling with or want to get better at mentoring graduate students.
This workshop will be held on Friday, March 21st from 9:30 am to 11:00 am in the J. Willard Marriott Library, Gould Auditorium. This workshop is free, but we ask that you register in advance at: http://ctle.utah.edu/tws/.
