Class Description: Mentors play an essential role in aiding mentees in obtaining information and materials, and in accessing the collegial and professional networks, etc. necessary to achieve professional goals. Professional skills are important for mentees to accumulate, as they are relevant whether the mentee decides to become a career researcher or pursue another profession. This class covers the role that mentors should play in helping mentees achieve their goals. During the live class meeting, we will use case studies to explore issues in the mentor role in mentees’ career development.
- Identify skills and topics relevant for undergraduate researchers’ professional development
- Select tasks and goals that showcase a mentee’s professional skills and assess current skills level
- Identify considerations/implications of professional development 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.
