REd Online: Introduction to Research Mentoring is a prerequisite before enrolling into this class. Click here to enroll.

LIVE SESSION: Wednesday, January 19, 2022 @2:00pm - 3:00pm, Zoom

Class Description: While academic reading and writing can be challenging even for the most experienced researchers, the highly specialized discourses of our disciplines can be particularly mystifying and intimidating for emerging researchers. This class covers principles and strategies for supporting mentees’ academic literacies, and encourages mentors to recognize and value language diversity. During the live class meeting, we will use case studies to explore issues in the development of mentees’ academic literacies.


Class Objectives: At the conclusion of this class, you should be able to:

  • Develop methods of providing effective feedback on researcher writing
  • Connect mentees with on-campus resources for research writing
  • Identify considerations/implications of mentorship in academic reading and writing for diverse mentees


REd Synchronous classes are taught by subject matter experts, and provide both fundamental and advanced skills training in flipped classroom format. These classes are offered live (currently, via Zoom), wherein participants will attend and participate in a 1-hour presentation and will be held responsible for completing any required pre-class and/or post-class activities outside the classroom (these activities can include: readings, videos, etc.). Participants can expect to spend up to 1-hour with these activities. The total duration for these synchronous classes is approximately 2-hours.
