Introduction to Research Mentoring
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.
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.
