Developing Effective Teaching and Mentoring Skills
Hemingway, Claire .
Good science and good science mentoring: Making the connection online.
MENTORING is a fundamental, though often informal, aspect of the culture of science. Scientists usually learn good science and good science mentoring skills by example, and hone these skills through on-the-job experience. This interactive session will present participants with opportunities to explore and discuss mentoring approaches. We will address some of the unique challenges of communicating online and working with young learners. This session is geared primarily toward graduate students and post-doctoral researchers interested in building their mentoring skills; it would also be of interest to faculty members looking for meaningful outreach programs to meet National Science Foundationís Criterion 2. This workshop will introduce participants to a new opportunity in the Scientific Inquiry through Plants program. Come find out how to become a Master Plant Mentor and reap multiple benefits.
