Mentoring Research Students in Science and Engineering
February 6 & 21, March 6 & 28 and April 3 &18
This group supports science and engineering faculty who are just starting out as research mentors for their graduate assistants. Most faculty receive substantial training in conducting research and teaching as graduate students, but few have significant experience supervising graduate student researchers.
This group meets twice monthly to discuss mentoring graduate research students in science and engineering fields. The group will read about strategies for mentoring and share our own perspectives, challenges and successes. The group meets at noon over lunch on the second Wednesday and fourth Thursday of each month. John Buck (email@example.com, x9237) is the coordinator for the group. Interested faculty should contact John Buck directly to participate or with questions.
