Full course description

Research Education (REd) is excited to offer a robust Research Mentoring training pathway based off the feedback that REd received for Spring 2022. 

Certificate Information: The purpose of the Research Mentoring Certificate is to increase the capacity of the University of Utah to provide high-quality research mentoring. Participation in the program is available to University of Utah graduate students, post-docs, staff, and faculty. The certificate involves six (6) classes presented in Canvas course format, accompanied by five (5) live meetings held via Zoom. 

These Zoom meetings use case studies to demonstrate issues that may arise in mentor-mentee relationships and are intended to facilitate conversation and provide an opportunity for participants to work through problems collaboratively. Topics covered in the online classes and the case studies are organized around core mentor training competencies grounded in academic research (e.g. Pfund et al. 2013 (Links to an external site.)) and modified based on participant feedback and facilitator expertise.
