Class Description: Research mentors play crucial roles in the development of emerging scholars. Elements of Effective Mentoring/Developing a Mentoring Philosophy is the first class in the Research Mentoring Certificate and provides a foundation for the remainder of the certificate classes. Participants are introduced to the research-based characteristics of high-quality mentoring and are encouraged to reflect on how their own experiences as a mentor and as a mentee influence their own mentoring practice. Crucially, this class problematizes harmful mentoring attitudes and practices and exposes participants to issues that disproportionally impact marginalized mentees.

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

  • Identify research-based characteristics of high-quality mentoring.
  • Explain how your prior experiences with mentorship influence their approaches to working with research mentees.
  • Recognize considerations/implications of mentorship for diverse mentees.
